To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how much has been spent on research and development in current prices in each year since 1997–98; and what her plans are for each year until 2005–06. [125590]

I refer the hon. Member to the written ministerial statement I made on 16 July 2003, Official Report, column 46WS.The figures in Forward Look 2003 extend to 2004–05. Corresponding figures for 2005–06 are not yet available. However, plans for the Science Budget up to 2005–06 are set out in the DTI OST document 'Science Budget 2003–04 to 2005–06' a copy of which is in the Libraries of the House.
