§ Dr. David Owen
asked the Prime Minister if he will publish the findings of the interdepartmental inquiry on oceanography and marine science, so as to make known the extent to which decisions affecting the siting of the Natural Environment Research Council research establishments form part of a coherent plan for the development of this aspect of science policy.
§ The Prime Minister
If my hon. Friend has in mind the review referred to by my right hon. Friend the then Secretary of State for Education and Science in answer to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for West Lothian (Mr. Dalzell) on 3rd July last, the results of the review are now being studied by those of my right hon. Friends with Departmental responsibilities in this field. Consideration will be given to what, if anything, can be published when that study has been completed.
