§ Mr. Breed
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how much has been spent by her Department and its predecessors on research and development in each of the last 15 years broken down by category. 
§ Alun Michael
Breaking down the figure spent on research and development programmes, by category, for DEFRA, former MAFF, DETR and DOE for each of the last 15 years could be achieved only at disproportionate cost. A full picture of the current DEFRA research programme, including details of all projects, can be found on the DEFRA website http://www.defra.gov.uk/research.
