The Russell Group, nineteen of the UK's major research-led universities 

    http://www.russellgroup.ac.uk/index1.html
    http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/documents/rep_distrib.html

have released a Statement on Scholarly Communication and Publishing 

    http://www.russellgroup.ac.uk/2005/scholarly_communication.htm

echoing the recommendations of the UK Parliamentary Select Committee

    http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmsctech/399/39903.htm

by pledging to 

    "support the development of institutional repositories of research
    papers... [and to] actively encourage their researchers to deposit
    their work in them".

(Of the Russell Group 84% [16/19] already have institutional repositories.)
