Dr. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on his policy towards the European Commission stimulation plan for economic and social sciences (corn (88) 98 final/spes) 1989 to 1992; and how it will assist the development of new co-operation in Europe on economic and social scientific initiatives in universities and research institutes.

Mr. Jackson

The Government welcomes this proposal to promote European co-operation in economic science. It complements existing Government policies directed at enhancing appropriate international collaboration in research and development. It will assist co-operation by supporting training, communication, and mobility among European economists.
