Rector of Glasgow University
That the Parliament agrees that the position of Rector of Glasgow University is one that carries considerable responsibility as well as bestowing honour and dignity upon the holder of the post; notes with concern the views of many students of Glasgow University who are calling for the resignation of the current Rector Mr Ross Kemp, on the basis that he has failed in many of his Rectorial duties, including failing to give the freshers' address in two successive years and to hold surgeries as promised, and therefore supports the students of Glasgow University and calls for his immediate resignation as Rector.
