Charles Mills (Bud) Drury (Minister of Industry; Minister of Defence Production)

Liberal

Hon. C. M. Drury (Minister of Industry):

In so far as the Medical Research Council is concerned, the answer is as follows: 1. Yes. The Medical Research Council took action on applications for grants in aid of research for

1967- 68 at four meetings. Applications for

1968- 69 have been considered at one meeting to date; applications have also been, or will be accepted for consideration at three further meetings.

2. The total number of applications and renewal applications submitted to the Medical Research Council for grants in aid of research to be conducted in 1967-68 was 1,511; the dollar value of those applications totalled $22,036,314.78. The applications for grants in aid of research submitted to the Medical Research Council to date for 1968-69 number 1,468, with a total dollar value of $25,497,408.76.

3. No. of applications 1968-69 (First meeting only)

for grants in aid 1967-68

Approved in full 803 457Approved in part 363 113Defererd for later consideration 46 207Rejected 299 76

A further 615 applications have now been submitted for 1968-69 for consideration at the second meeting in March 1968.

4. The total dollar value of applications for grants in aid approved for 1967-68 was $14,906,310.23. The total dollar value approved, to date, for 1968-69 is $10,112,895.00.

5. The percentage of the total value of grant applications approved in November 1966 was 60 per cent; in November 1967, 42 per cent.

6. The percentage change in Part 5 was due to the large number of applications deferred

at the November 1967 meeting for further consideration. Deferment of this number of applications is required because of uncertainty at the time concerning the total number of applications to be received for 1968-69 and because of uncertainty concerning the funds which would be available for the grants in aid program.
