To ask the President of the Board of Trade what were the indicative contributions to the EU budget in respect of research and development for his Department in 1993–94. [1906]

Mr. Ian Taylor

Table 2.1 of the statistical supplement to the "Forward Look of Government-funded Science, Engineering and Technology" contains indicative figures for the United Kingdom's contributions to the EC budget in respect of research and development. My Department's policy responsibilities are subject to change and can vary from year to year. My Department currently has responsibility for 71.14 per cent. of the Community's research and development budget.
