Willets warned over science cuts

David Willets, the Science Minister, has been warned over cutting the science budget in a letter sent by the Lords Science and Technology Committee, which articulated the views of the heads of six leading universities. Metrics showing the increase in early stage researchers heading abroad as other countries increased, or were perceived as increasing, their science budgets were cited. Alongside this was a warning about damage to the research base on which the government intends to build a new hitech economy.
