Message 1: BBC correction: University of Durham

Subject: BBC correction: University of Durham


The BBC Online site mentioned in Elizabeth Pyatt's message (18 Nov)
contained wrong information about the Durham situation. The BBC has
now corrected it. See

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/wear/3275219.stm .

Durham City Council's request to the University to reconsider its
decision covered only East Asian Studies, not Linguistics. The
University has not said the departments ''fell short'' of University
standards.
