HC Deb 16 October 1969 vol 788 c112W
18. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what financial support he is giving to the Royal Society's plans to further contacts with countries of Western or Eastern Europe.

Mr. Fowler

Disposition of the grant-in-aid to the Royal Society is a matter primarily for the Society, but £110,000 of the current grant of £871,000 is being used to fund fellowships to Western European countries under reciprocal arrangements, and I understand that a significant proportion of a further £96,000 for travelling expenses, delegates to conferences and relations with overseas academies is being devoted to Europe.
