asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if any further adjustments are being made to his Department's cash limits for the financial year 1979–80, in particular the cash limits for the research councils.
The cash limits for Vote 13 (Medical Research Council), Vote 16 (Social Science Council) and Vote 18 (Other Science) announced in the Government's White Paper on Cash Limits (Cmnd. 7604) have been increased to take account of the revised forecast cost of university pay settlements in the financial year 1979–80 The revised cash limits are:
|Medical Research Council||0·660|
|Social Science Research Council||0·250|
