§ Mr. Matthew Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what has been the annual expenditure by Euratom on research into nuclear fusion, including the JET programme, from its inception until 1987–88, in actual costs and 1986–87 prices, indicating the United Kingdom Government's financial contribution to this programme.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
The payment appropriations for Euratom are contained in the Official Journal of the European Communities (L series), copies of which are available in the Library of the House. The United Kingdom contribution is not separately identified, but information on our share of the Community own resources is contained in volume 2, chapter III, paragraph 7, of the 1987 public expenditure White Paper.
