§ Mr. Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what amount was spent on research and development in the United Kingdom in the years 1960 to 1964, respectively; and what percentage of each amount was 281W spent in England, Scotland and Wales, respectively.
§ Mr. Crosland
Surveys of expenditure on research and development in the United Kingdom are made every three years and the last inquiry (for 1961–62) showed that the amount spent was £634 million. A new survey in respect of 1964–65 is now in progress. No analysis was made in the 1961–62 survey of the amounts spent in England, Scotland or Wales.
