HC Deb 05 November 1986 vol 103 c445W
Mr. D. E. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much was spent by his Department on research and development during the last year for which figures are available; and what proportion was spent in Wales.

Mr. Waddington

The Home Office spent £14.2 million on research and development in 1985–86: the information as to what proportion of this was spent in Wales is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
