HC Deb 23 June 1986 vol 100 c64W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what information he has about the principal areas of research and development carried out by the pharmaceutical industry in each of the last five years.

Mr. Hayhoe

I regret that the Department does not collect information of the kind requested. I am not aware of any comprehensive published information relating solely to the United Kingdom, but the "Scrip Year Books" for 1985 and 1986, produced by PJB Publications Ltd. contain tables relating to research and development activity internationally.
