§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what research his Department has carried out into monitoring response to therapeutic intervention in schizophrenia using the Stroop test; what have been the results; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Bowis
Our research programme is designed to support strategic policy development, not to test the effectiveness of specific therapeutic interventions for individual disorders. The main agency through which the Government support biomedical and clinical research is the Medical Research Council, which receives its grant-in-aid through the office of my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.
