Regarding the advice viz a vie disaffiliation\affiliation: We can either disaffiliate or no affilation was ever valid. The Constitution is internally consistent except where taken in a very narrow reading of a very particular part. Response to SA from the C&S Committee: “The C&S Committee have received legal advice indicating that if we pass a motion in accordance with Regulation 6.3 (Discipline Procedure) to disaffiliate a club then that club will not be affiliated to UMSU after that motion is passed.” Due to this, no further discussion of this matter will be entertained. Agenda Item 2A: Request a response from Socialist Alternative
