Motion text

That this House is gravely concerned by proposals by the International Baccalaureate to move out of Cardiff to another city in Europe; notes it has been based in Wales for nearly two decades and at its headquarters in Cardiff Gate Business Park since 2001, which offers head office functions for the worldwide organisation and employs 330 highly-trained staff; notes there is no reason related to staff recruitment, quality or loyalty to justify such a move; and urges the board of the International Baccalaureate to reject proposals that will result in the disruption of such a successful organisation and the loss of 330 jobs in Cardiff.
