Professor Judd has requested to postpone the Delta B Committee to give him more time, and he cannot report to the next Council.
The Chief Rabbi has written to ask Foster if he can attend the next Society Soirée, and Rix asks if Dr Martineau can attend, noting that due to his age of eighty-three he is unlikely to attend many times.
