Welcome to Redbrick’s live coverage of Guild Council. All the papers for this meeting, as well as summaries of the motions to be discussed, can be found on our Guild Council hub (if you’re not already there!)






a) Comments after speeches
Proposed by: Dwayne Spiteri and Harry Jacobs
Summary: To edit the Guild council guidance documents such that comments as well as questions are allowed after a round of speeches.
b) Enable a freer press at Guild Elections
Proposed by: James Phillips

Summary: Change Guild policy with regard to working with companies that engage in tax avoidance or evasion.
d) Email
Proposed by: Alex Deam
Summary: To look into the creation of specific mailing lists for every Guild Councillor.

f) Hustings
Proposed by: Alex Deam
Summary: Look into creating hustings for elections through RAs and Student Reps
