The Ministry of Technology Office for Wales maintains very close contact with the work of the university in this field, and keeps my right hon. Friend's office fully informed through the conference of heads of Government offices in Wales and the Welsh Planning Board. The Welsh Economic Council includes in its membership two senior members of the university staff.

Is my hon. Friend aware that this will be very encouraging indeed to the School of Engineering Science at Bangor which is engaged now in the project of establishing an industrial liaison unit at Bangor?

I appreciate what my hon. Friend says. Indeed, both at Bangor and Cardiff impressive schemes of research are proceeding on this basis.
