HC Deb 29 April 1985 vol 78 c3W
Mr. Coombs

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what use is made of market research by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Sir Keith Joseph

The Department has funded market research from time to time where this is relevant to policy needs. A recent example was a study on knowledge of drug misuse undertaken by Andrew Irving Associates and jointly funded with the Department of Health and Social Security.
