To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how much the Natural Environment Research Council has provided in grants, subsidies or awards to the University of East Anglia in each financial year since 1998; and how much was assigned to the University's Climatic Research Unit in each such year.

I have been asked to reply.

The following table shows the total value of awards made by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to the university of East Anglia (UEA) in each year from 1998 to 2009. It also includes the value of any of these awards categorised as climate or climate-related. Figures for awards specifically to the Climatic Research Unit are not available. NERC believes, however, that grants made to Climatic Research Unit researchers comprise a minor fraction of the climate and climate-related investment at UEA shown in the table.
