HC Deb 04 February 1985 vol 72 c444W
Mr. Strang

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what figures he uses in comparing Government research and development spending on agriculture in the United Kingdom with that in other countries.

Mrs. Fenner

International comparisons of Government expenditure on agricultural research and development are published by the OECD and by Eurostat; but in making these comparisons regard must be had to differences between the sets of national data used.
