As the strategic partnership of the seven UK Research Councils, RCUK frequently submits written evidence to inquiries and consultations by government departments, Select Committees of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, and to other organisations. Each submission represents the views of up to seven Research Councils on matters relating to research, research policy and strategic priorities.
The full transcripts of written or oral evidence relating to our parliamentary submissions can be found on the Committees section of the Parliamentary website. Once a written submission has been published on a Committee’s website, it will also be added to this page. Submissions to other organisations will be published on this page as appropriate once they have been submitted.
