HC Deb 12 December 1972 vol 848 cc103-4W
75. Mr. Warren

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will state the number of qualified scientists and doctors working on cancer research in the United Kingdom for whom Her Majesty's Government have financial or other responsibility.

Mrs. Thatcher

About 300 scientists and doctors are supported by the Medical Research Council in its own establishments, in university departments and in the three main United Kingdom cancer research institutes. Many others for whom precise figures are not available are supported by the Health Departments or through University Grants Committee funds in universities and hospitals. In addition, much work in the broader field of biomedical research is to some extent relevant to cancer problems.
