To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science how much money allocated by the Universities Funding Council in 1990–91 to each university and university college can be identified as being for research; and of this allocation how much was utilised for purposes other than research by each institution.

The Universities Funding Council allocated £680 million on research-based criteria to universities in academic year 1991–92. This sum was not hypothecated for research. The council has allowed each institution to determine its own spending on teaching and research within the aggregate funds available to it from all sources.
