IN AN article on 15 March, 'Cramped students to advertise plight', we reported that two philosophy lecturers at University College, Swansea, were on leave of absence following allegations they had made about the low academic standards of an MA course. We have been asked to make clear that an independent investigation has found that the allegations made by the two lecturers were substantially justified and that they have been suspended from their positions on full pay pending resolution of the College's dispute with them.

We also quoted Professor Clarkson, the College principal, as saying that the two lecturers assisted students in their occupation of the College Registry. The principal has subsequently acknowledged that he drew the wrong inference from their presence at the student meeting and that neither lecturer assisted the students in such occupation (Letters, 29 March).
