HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c142W
43. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received about the future status of the director of the Royal Greenwich Observatory; and what reply he has sent.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

None. I am aware of concern among the staff of the Observatory based on newspaper reports but they have been assured that no proposals have been made either to or by the Science Research Council or to my right hon. Friend.
