HC Deb 09 April 1964 vol 692 c235W
43. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation, how many members of his staff are engaged specifically in agricultural research and research on agricultural education; to what extent experimental schemes are being conducted; and what results are being obtained.

Mr. Carr

The Department of Technical Co-operation finances, or helps to finance, about 1,250 such workers in many parts of the world, including the United Kingdom. Of these 89 are paid direct from the Vote of my Department. Since they are variously employed on many differing aspects of research, I will write to the hon. Member describing the staff involved and some of their more important activities.
