HC Deb 24 February 1999 vol 326 c317W
Dr. Gibson

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list the investments made by industry over the last five years in research by publicly and jointly funded laboratories into genetically modified foods and crops. [72038]

Mr. Battle

To answer the question it will be necessary to compile the information from the laboratories' records for the last five years, which will take some time. When the information is collected I shall write to my hon. Friend and place a copy of the answer in the Library of the House.
