Standing Policy motions set out what you'd like the JCR to work on.
Anyone can submit a Standing Policy motion. Once passed, items are added to the Standing Policy which sets out the JCR’s beliefs and the kind of policies JCR Officers should seek to promote. Items lapse after 3 years if not removed earlier, but can be reintroduced as a new motion.
See the latest Standing Policy document below, as well as an archive beneath.

Below is a selection of what we have, labelled by their (approximate) effective date where it has been possible to discern.
