asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will list (a) the total grants made by the Science Research Council in each year since 1965, (b) the grants made by the Science Research Council, by subject and amount, which have been given to members of the Council, or its committees, as principal investigators or other leading participants in these projects in each year since 1965, and (c) the total grants given by the Science Research Council to members of the Council or its committees, as a percentage of the total grants given by the Council in each year since 1965.

The answer to the first part of the Question is as follows:

YearTotal £000's
1965–667,852
1966–679,655
1967–689,419
1968–6911,210
1969–7014,102
1970–7114,041
1971–7215,765
1972–7318,900
1973–7419,525
1974–7525,921*
1975–76(provisional)25,027
* Not strictly comparable with figures for earlier years owing to changes associated with the computerisation of the records.
Answers to the second and third parts for the whole of the period since 1965 could not be provided without disproportionate expenditure of time and effort, but the Council hopes to be able to produce information for the year 1975–76. I will write to my hon. Friend when this is available.
