§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is the total amount of receipts for each standard region of the United Kingdom from ESPRIT, RACE, BRITE and other European Community framework funds for research and development.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
Unfortunately it is not possible to provide a regional breakdown for allocation of EC funds. However, United Kingdom organisations are very successful in securing funding from the Community's R and D programmes, obtaining approximately 20 per cent. of the funding available under the Community's European R and D framework programme.
