HC Deb 16 May 1968 vol 764 c272W
45. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what was the value and nature of the contracts he placed with the Microbiological Research Establishment and Chemical Defence Experimental Establishment, Porton, during 1966–67 and 1967–68.

Mr. Oram

There have been no contracts; but we have contributed, on the recommendation of the Medical Research Council, towards certain overseas research into viral epidemiology by scientists from the Microbiological Research Establishment. The last such grant was made in 1966 and amounted to £2,109.
