HC Deb 17 June 2003 vol 407 c137W
Mr. Clifton-Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether her Department is sponsoring future research into telecommunications and health following the Stewart Report. [119601]

Mr. Timms

The Department is one of the co-funders of the LINK Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR) Programme along with other Government Departments, agencies and industry. The first projects to be funded under the Programme were announced in January 2002. The Department has also directly funded a small number of projects, primarily concerned with measurement issues, which fell outside the scope of the programme, but are managed and monitored according to the same principles as the MTHR work. Further information is available on the programme website: www.mthr.org.uk
