§ Mr. Cohen
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his estimate of the number of oncomice produced to date; how many have been experimented on; to whom royalties are paid for the use of oncomice; and if he will make a statement on the value of experiments on oncomice. 605W
§ Mr. Sackville
Central records are insufficiently detailed to indicate the number of such procedures. Patents have been applied for, but not yet granted, in the European Union. I have no knowledge about royalties due or paid in the United Kingdom. I understand that research using oncomice has the aim of increasing scientific knowledge about the mechanisms of tumour production.
