Technological Universities Bill 2015: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage
I agree with the Minister that we need to be careful about the size of governing boards. I might consider that a board of 22 members, as provided for in the legislation, is probably too large. There is a reason that football teams are 15 in number. Given that there is provision for that scale, I return to the example where one might have three students on a board of 21 members, which would not be excessive. I continue to make the case, but I hear the Minister's response.
