Today sees the House of Commons Innovation, Universities and Skills select committee undertaking an investigation into what’s gone wrong with the STFC budget. The fun begins at 4.15pm UT, and can be watched live on Parliament TV. It comes with a promise from the committee’s chairman, Phil Willis, that
“ .. my committee’s going to examine .. who is responsible, where the fault lies, and indeed what can be done to save physics and particle physics in the UK ” so should be worth watching.
I’ll provide a commentary here if I can, but as background the Royal Society, and the Royal Astronomical Society and Institute of Physics have issued statements.
