UNIVERSITY staff have been told they may no longer say 'This is my wife' when introducing spouses, writes Rhys Williams.

According to a 11-page brochure issued to staff at the University of Central Lancashire, the word 'my' indicates possession and is discriminatory. 'My secretary' is also banned. Companions should always be introduced by their full name.

The 1,500 staff have been warned they could face disciplinary action if they breach the guidelines, which are 'a matter of common courtesy', not political correctness.
