Shortage of governors is chronic
This serious problem has been brewing for several years, and is not helped by the Government's failure to implement the recommendations of the Neill Committee that the law relating to the personal liability of governors should be subject to some modest an overdue reform.
This inaction smacks at worst of arrogance and at least of an indifference to the concerns of the many unpaid volunteers who are expected to do the Government's bidding.
It is surely time for college governors to speak out.
