A motion was brought to CUSU Council proposing to restrict stallholders from bringing firearms to the annual Freshers’ Fair. The motion originally proposed that external staff from national organisations should not attend the Freshers’ Fair with student societies, as it is a student-focussed event. This part of the motion was removed before it was passed. The final motion only proposed to restrict firearms at the Freshers’ Fair event and did not constitute any sort of ban on military personnel, military organisations or military student societies.
All registered student societies are welcome at the CUSU Freshers’ Fair, including student military societies, and this will continue to be the case.
