Leukaemia: Research

Volume 489: debated on Thursday 19 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much his Department has spent on research into leukaemia in each of the last 10 years. (264405)

Over the last 10 years, the main part of the Department’s research and development budget has been allocated to and managed by national health service organisations. Those organisations have accounted for their use of the allocations they have received from the Department in an annual research and development report. The reports identify total, aggregated expenditure on national priority areas, including cancer. They do not provide details of research into particular cancer sites.

The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI), a United Kingdom wide partnership between government, charities and industry, makes cancer research information available online via the International Cancer Research Portfolio database at:

Details of current departmental and Medical Research Council site-specific cancer research can be found through this database.
