An error has been identified in the written answer given on 18 December 2018.

The correct answer should have been:

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) was created on 1 April 2018 and so did not exist as a legal entity in previous financial years. Figures have been provided for its predecessor bodies for the most recent financial years available. The table shows expenditure by the nine councils that now make up UKRI, per head of population in each region and nation of the UK. The expenditure figures include research council and Innovate UK grants, and HEFCE/Research England’s Research Capital Investment Fund, Quality-related research (QR) funding and Higher Education Innovation Funding.
