Description:
By January, 1986 one year had passed since the meeting between the Minister for Health. Mr. Barry Desmond, and the Council in the Custom House. In the year under review matters moved more or less inexorably towards a merger of the functions of the Medical Research Council and the Medico-Social Research Board. While the Council agreed to the basic logic of combining the functions of the two bodies, there were considerable differences between the Council and the Minister as to how best this would be achieved. In particular the Council was very much aware of its responsibility to protect the status and optimise the funding of medical research. The Council suggested setting up an overseeing body to co-ordinate the work of the Council and the Board, thereby guaranteeing that the work of the Council would continue as heretofore both operationally ruled financially. As the minutes of the Council testify there was much discussion and negotiation with the Department of Health on this and other matters in relation to combining the function of the two bodies, but by Summer it became quite obvious that little compromise would pertain. Specifically, while the Medical Research Council could continue to function outside the proposed new structure, we were informed by the Department that it was the intention of the Minister to cease funding at year's end. In practical terms the task of the Council became one of ensuring the future welfare of medical research within the structure of the proposed new body.
