To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what public resources were committed through the Medical Research Council for research into meningitis in 1988–89; and what is the figure for 1990–91.

[holding answer 11 June 1990]: Expenditure on research into meningitis during the 1988–89 financial year was £161,000. The Medical Research Council is always prepared to consider soundly based proposals for research and the figure for 1990–91 will depend on the number of successful applications submitted.
