Met Office welcomes findings of Transport Select Committee

12 05 2011

The Met Office welcomes the findings of the Transport Select Committee and its acknowledgement of the quality of our short range forecasts provided during November and December of last year.

The Transport Select Committee has also recommended additional funding for the Met Office of £10m over four years. This would go towards providing advice on possible UK weather impacts for transport and other sectors in the coming decades, that could bring significant benefits to those managing and planning major infrastructure projects for the future.

The additional funds would be used, in partnership with the UK academic community, to enable fundamental research on the drivers of future changes in UK hazardous weather and climate extremes to be conducted.
