§ Mr. Strang
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will state the number of contracts and research agreements the royal ordnance factories have in universities and other institutions of higher education.

There are currently no contracts or agreements let with universities and other institutions of higher education on behalf of ROFs Burghfield and Cardiff. Contracts or agreements made by Royal Ordnance plc are a matter for the company.
