Jobs blow to Aberystwyth

I am concerned to hear that up to seventy jobs are under threat at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences in Aberystwyth.

Although it is hoped that these job cuts can be obtained through natural wastage there is still the threat of compulsory redundancies.

Aberystwyth simply cannot afford to lose high quality jobs such as these at IBERS and I have tabled a series of questions today to the Minister, asking him to intervene and to make representations on behalf of those whose jobs are under threat.

  1. Just read about this and it looks like its a 100 jobs now, I have been really suprised that no one seems to be getting involved with the workers here. Welsh higher education is going to be in an awful state if this sort of thing carries on.

    Surely Wales must invest in its future
