That this House expresses grave concern at the serious financial situation affecting the School of Ocean Sciences at the University of Wales, Bangor; notes the unique contribution made by the School in terms of resource exploration and in environmental monitoring in Wales; further notes that it is now the largest marine science establishment within the British university system and able to compete with the best in the world; condemns the Universities Funding Council's decision to withdraw the School's special support grant at the rate of ú50,000 a year and its failure to support the School's status as a leading research institution; and calls on the Council to reconsider its allocation of resources to enable the School to develop its outstanding record of achievement in the field of ocean sciences.

This motion has been signed by a total of 5 MPs.
