§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what the organisational structures of the British Geological Survey will be in future in the context of its recently agreed terms of reference; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Brooke
The organisational changes of the British Geological Survey are still under discussion in the context of the published NERC corporate plan. I understand that a final structure will be agreed after further consultation, particularly involving the director of earth sciences when appointed.
