There was a lobby of the board of Governors the 18th of November 2009.
This was a crucial date as the board of Governors were presented with the Melville/Deloitte report, a report commissioned by the University.
Sir David Meville had made it quite clear that he wanted his report to be made public soon after it had been presented to the Board of Governors.
However, during the meeting, and due to the damaging revelations in the reports, the Board of Governors decided to not have it published before later in December.
The appointment of the new Vice Chancellor was also being announced during the meeting.
