HC Deb 21 May 1985 vol 79 c389W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is satisfied with the adequacy of the funding of the Institute of Hearing Research.

Mr. Brooke

The Medical Research Council, which receives its grant-in-aid through the Department, is the main Government agency for the promotion of medical research in the United Kingdom. It is for the council to decide on the distribution of the resources available to it between research in the various areas of science, including work undertaken at its own units of which the Institute of Hearing Research is one.
