Quotes

Dr Roger Brugge from the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading said: "October has been a warm and wet month - the average temperature looks as though it will end up being about 2°C  above the average."
Professor Gavin Parker, from the School of Real Estate and Planning, Henley Business School, University of Reading, led the re project. He said: "It's very good news that so many people are willing to engage in shaping their future. Well over 1000 communities are working on Neighbourhood Plans already. This report will aid policymakers, planners and neighbourhoods to shape the future of Neighbourhood planning and also highlights aspects of the policy initiative which are a work in progress."
"ERIC, which can be downloaded from the internet, generates a simple standardised score according to the age of the child. In our study ERIC identified well over 90% of the cases of delay. And crucially, if ERIC says your child is not delayed, there is over a 99% chance that is correct. So ERIC is a very reliable tool which clinicians can give to worried parents or to anyone looking after an at-risk child. A 'positive' ERIC could then result in the child undergoing a Bayley. More targeted Bayleys mean more children will be assessed, either receiving reassurance or treatment."
Professor Halliwell said: "The University of Leicester is very proud to host the InstituteInstitute of Directors, India. The University, as well as the city, has strong historical, cultural and commercial links with India and this high-profile visit is a testament to the value that directors of Indian institutions place on our connections. This visit is an important opportunity to cement our ties and foster new links with this increasingly important market for higher education and business."
