The Students Union of the University of Manchester, at its first senate session of the academic year, has passed a resolution to ban clapping at events of the union. The daily, quoting the student newspaper Macunion, said, "It was argued that the loud noise of traditional “clapping and whooping” pose an issue to students with anxiety or sensory issues. BSL (British Sign Language) clapping – or, jazz hands – would be a more inclusive form of expression." According to the student’s union website, the senate makes decisions about what the student’s union should believe and take action on. More than 66 per cent of vote is needed for passing a motion.
