HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 c144W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how much money from Government sources in 1970 was directed to research in applied science, and how much to research in pure science; and how the figures compare with the last five years.

Mrs. Thatcher

No figures are available on the extent to which Government money spent in support of research is expended in the field of applied science or pure science.
