HC Deb 17 May 1994 vol 243 c439W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement on his Departrnent's funding for research into Alzheimer's disease.

Mr. Waldegrave

The Medical Research Council, which receives its funding from the Office of Science and Technology, spent £1.5 million on research directly related to Alzheimer's disease in 1992–93, and a further £3.4 million on research of relevance to the condition.

The MRC is always willing to consider soundly based scientific proposals in competition with other applications for research funding.
