Mrs. Anne Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what were the indicative contributions to the EU budget in respect of research and development for his Department in 1993–94. [1915]

Mr. Raymond S. Robertson

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. The Scottish Office does not have policy responsibility for Community R and D expenditure and makes no direct contribution to the R and D budget.
