HL Deb 18 February 1988 vol 493 c851WA
Lord Blease

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether in view of the report by Comptroller and Auditor General to Northern Ireland into Department of Agriculture Agricultural Colleges (HC paper 235) there is now to be a similar inquiry, under the Department of Agriculture, Northern Ireland (DANI) Policy Review, into the arrangements with the Queen's University Belfast, Faculty of Agriculture and Food Science, all of whose academic staff are joint appointments with DANI.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Northern Ireland Office (Lord Lyell)

The arrangements between Queen's University of Belfast and the Department of Agriculture concerning the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Science were examined in 1984–85. There are no plans for a further review as they are working satisfactorily.
