asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many trade union representatives of the staff at the New University of Ulster and the Ulster Polytechnic will be included on the steering committee overseeing the merger of these two institutions.

The full membership of the steering group has not yet been determined. It will include members appointed after consultation with the two existing institutions. The group will clearly have to take account of the interests of the staff who will be affected by the merger, and there will be opportunities for consultations between the steering group and staff associations, but it is not intended that members of the steering group should be appointed as representatives of particular interests.
