HL Deb 13 December 1994 vol 559 c116WA
Viscount Davidson

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What decisions were taken on the Fourth Framework Programme at the Research Council on 1 December.

The Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Earl Howe)

The Council reached agreement on the remaining aspects of the Fourth Framework Programme. This will enable the Commission to issue calls for proposals on most if not all the outstanding specific programmes in December. We believe that the Framework Programme presents United Kingdom researchers with a worthwhile challenge to which they will be able to respond fully, as they have done in the past.
