§ Mr. Alex Carlile
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list the research sponsored by his Department through the Medical Research Council, and the amount spent on each project for(a) AIDS-HIV prevention and (b) AIDS-HIV treatment for the last five years for which figures are available and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Horam
The overall expenditure figures on AIDS research over the last five years are:
F/Y £k 1989–90 6,200 1990–91 13,300 1991–92 15,900 1992–93 15,300 1993–94 16,200
The nature of the research is such that a split between prevention and treatment is artificial, as many of the research projects cover both aspects. The overall figures do not therefore draw a distinction between the two.
I have today placed copies of lists of the HIV and AIDS research projects supported by the MRC in the Libraries of both Houses. These lists show the titles of the projects, by whom they were carried out and the resources allocated. The list indicates both current projects and projects already completed, indicated by -.
