Natural Environment Research Council

Volume 707: debated on Tuesday 27 January 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will increase funding for the Natural Environment Research Council. [HL888]

The Department for Innovation Universities and Skills published its CSR 2007 allocations in December 2007. This included £1,236 million to the Natural Environment Research Council to cover the spending period 2008-09 to 2010-11. Funding has risen from £259 million in 2003-04 to £436 million in 2010-11. This represents a major and continuing commitment by the Government. The level of funding in 2011-12 and beyond will be determined in future spending rounds.
