To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) what representations he has received concerning the future of the Natural Environment Research Council's research vessels services centre at Barry in South Glamorgan; and if he will make a statement;(2) if he will make a statement on the future of the Natural Environment Research Council's research vessels services centre at Barry in South Glamorgan.

My right hon. Friend has received no representations concerning the future of the Natural Environment Research Council research vessels services centre at Barry in South Glamorgan. The future of the centre is a matter for NERC, and I understand that the council is investigating the feasibility of resiting the centre to Southampton as part of a proposed interdisciplinary research centre on deep sea oceanography.
