Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he intends to commission a joint study with the science research council on research priorities in robotics.

Mr. Macfarlane

The science research council, whose support for robotics research now amounts to about £750,000, has already made special arrangements to survey and co-ordinate existing work and to seek views on priorities.
