Cardiff Met's success; & COMMENT DEBATE YOUR LETTERS TO THE NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OF WALES.
* SIR - Two important facts emerge from Professor Chapman's response in yesterday's Mail to the proposed merger, and the possible dissolution Act or process of dissolving; termination; winding up. In this sense it is frequently used in the phrase dissolution of a partnership.
The dissolution of a contract is its Rescission by the parties themselves or by a court that nullifies its binding force and reinstates each of Cardiff's Metropolitan University.
Firstly, the Metropolitan University has been identified by Sir Steve Smith as a "well led and financially sound" institution, with as stated by Professor Chapman, a surplus of pounds 4.5m.
Secondly, the dialogue between Glamorgan University and Newport University, which is in line with Leighton Andrews' wishes, would create a university of viable size based on four campuses, and would appear an honourable political compromise.
Why, therefore, is Mr Andrews reluctant to allow Cardiff Met to escape his "net"? Might I suggest it is entirely financial, and without the occupationally-based courses and research programmes provided by Cardiff Met the University of South East Wales East Wales is the easternmost part of Wales. The area is loosely-defined, but generally is said to include the traditional counties of Monmouthshire (including the city of Newport), Brecknockshire, Radnorshire, Montgomeryshire (i.e. much of Powys), Flintshire and Denbighshire. would soon end up with recruitment difficulties. There may indeed be an over-provision of degree courses in Wales Wales, Welsh Cymru, western peninsula and political division (principality) of Great Britain (1991 pop. 2,798,200), 8,016 sq mi (20,761 sq km), west of England; politically united with England since 1536. The capital is Cardiff. , but destroying that part that is successful and works is not the answer. DR JAMES MARSDEN Llandaff, cardiff
