I draw the minister’s attention to the most recent meeting of the cross-party group on Alzheimer’s, at which we heard from research experts in the field. Is she aware that the Scottish dementia clinical research network’s funding is guaranteed only until March 2012? Does she agree that if we are to achieve the world-class status to which the dementia strategy refers, a commitment to long-term, secure funding is vital, to enable the network to undertake much-needed long-term planning?
