Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: UK Research and Innovation (24 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: As the UK’s largest funder of research and innovation, UKRI is central to delivering the objectives the government set out in the UK Science and Technology Framework, including across our portfolio of five critical technologies. UKRI is investing £250 million in Technology Missions to enable new and existing capabilities and capacity in artificial intelligence, quantum technologies and...

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Medicine: Research (24 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The UK works closely with international partners and key organisations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to promote the development and uptake of animal replacement technologies. There are currently no plans to host a summit on the matter.

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Medicine: Research (24 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The Government, via UK Research & Innovation, funds the development of techniques that replace, reduce and refine the use of animals in research through the National Centre for 3Rs (NC3Rs). The NC3Rs encourages researchers’ to use non-animal methods (NAMs) in a number of ways, including supporting the skills base by funding PhD students to work only on the development of NAMs, and dedicated...

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Disability (23 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) is a committed Disability Confident employer and takes several steps to support this initiative. Not one single individual works solely on this area of work, with the remit spread across individuals within HR (including Recruitment, Health, Safety and Wellbeing, Talent, and Culture and Inclusion), as well as line managers and staff...

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Electronic Purchasing Card Solution (23 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The Department spent a) £794.50 at Trove on catering for 70 people attending an all-day staff training event held off-site and b) £700 with Blue Orchid Hotels on the hire of a venue and equipment for an all-day staff training event for 100 people.

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Animal Experiments (23 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: On Monday 19th February, I announced that the government will be publishing a plan to accelerate the development, validation, and uptake of technologies and methods to reduce reliance on the use of animals in science. This summer, this will be led by a cross-government group that will consult stakeholders in industry, academia, and charities.

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Motor Vehicles (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The Government Car service (GCS) provides vehicles to a number of Government departments. Due to logistical and operational reasons the type of vehicles deployed at each department can vary on a daily or weekly basis. The GCS fleet currently has 122 vehicles, 58 (48%) of which are vehicles made in Britain.

Science, Innovation and Technology: STEM Workforce: Diversity and Inclusion (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The science and technology framework sets out our commitment to expanding STEM—science, technology, engineering and maths—opportunities to the most diverse range of people possible. We have acted swiftly to identify and dismantle any barriers to entry. As a result, we have seen major improvements in recent years, although there is always more to do.

Science, Innovation and Technology: STEM Workforce: Diversity and Inclusion (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The hon. Lady raises a very important point on National Numeracy Day. While we must not be complacent, the Government have made outstanding progress on equality for all. I hope she will join me in congratulating teachers in her constituency, and up and down the country, on the fact that last year, under this Government, girls made up 52%—a majority—of all science entries at A-level.

Science, Innovation and Technology: STEM Workforce: Diversity and Inclusion (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: I congratulate the Institute of Cancer Research on that progress. I would be delighted to meet the institute and hear what development it is making, as would my hon. Friends. This Government have increased the number of apprenticeships. Unfortunately, under the Opposition’s proposals the number of apprenticeships would halve.

Science, Innovation and Technology: STEM Workforce: Diversity and Inclusion (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: I commend my hon. Friend and Sir James Dyson for that initiative. It would be wonderful to see many more such initiatives across the whole country. My colleagues and I would be delighted to work with any philanthropists seeking to do something similar.

Science, Innovation and Technology: STEM Workforce: Diversity and Inclusion (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: We are enormously blessed in this country with the quality of our universities, so many of which, together with the firms that sponsor undergraduate and postgraduate research, are making magnificent efforts in the important area of diversity in STEM.

Science, Innovation and Technology: STEM Workforce: Diversity and Inclusion (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: As the hon. Lady well knows, diversity, STEM education and skills are at the heart of the UK science and technology framework, and we will be publishing skills frameworks for each of its priority areas.

Science, Innovation and Technology: Life Sciences Manufacturing (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The Government could not be more committed to supporting our valued life sciences sector, which, in the financial year ending 2022, contributed well over £100 billion in turnover to the UK economy and employed more than 300,000 people.

Science, Innovation and Technology: Life Sciences Manufacturing (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: My hon. Friend is right: such is the growth of this important sector that we need more lab space quickly. I personally benefited from the advice of Professor Martini in the life sciences real estate working group. Precision Health Technologies Accelerator does some amazing work in my hon. Friend’s constituency to knock down barriers to building, many of which are sadly the fault of Labour...

Science, Innovation and Technology: Life Sciences Manufacturing (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: Dementia is a crippling disease for so many people, and will touch so many people’s lives. The Health Secretary and I recently hosted the heads of the Dementia Mission at No. 10 Downing Street to announce more funding, and I should be happy to meet the hon. Member and any representatives of dementia organisations in his constituency.

Science, Innovation and Technology: Life Sciences Manufacturing (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The hon. Lady has made some important points. My officials and I have met representatives of the institute and have considered a number of options for it, of which they and, I believe, she will be aware.

Science, Innovation and Technology: Productivity (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The Government are providing record levels of taxpayer funding for research, and my right hon. Friend is right to highlight the opportunity to improve productivity. A priority for research councils is to focus on not just discovery but innovation, so that British taxpayers feel the benefits of faster economic growth, rising living standards and better health outcomes.

Science, Innovation and Technology: Productivity (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: That is exactly what we are doing. On Monday, the Prime Minister announced £15.5 million to roll out artificial intelligence radiotherapy that locates cancer cells two and a half times more quickly, helping to reduce those anxious days for patients and their families who are awaiting a diagnosis. That is affordable only thanks to the fact that our plan for the economy is working. Labour has...

Science, Innovation and Technology: Animal Testing: Research (22 Mai 2024)

Andrew Griffith: The day when we are able to eliminate animal testing cannot come quickly enough, though we are not there yet. We are committed to supporting the strategy to replace, reduce and refine the use of animals in research, and since taking office I have doubled the investment in non-animal methods of research to £20 million this year.
