asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many civil servants are employed in the research departments of all Government Departments and at what total annual cost, including salaries, pension contributions, accommodation, heating and lighting, and other services, including research contracted out and grants.

I regret that information is not collected centrally in this form, and could be assembled only at inordinate cost. A considerable amount of information on voted expenditure on in-house research and on research contracts and grants is given on a departmental basis in the Supply Estimates.
