Mother Hubbard 'Cupboard Bare' Shock
“The cupboard is bare, there is no more money,”Adam Afriyie, the Conservative shadow science minister, told a conference in London last week. However, he sought to reassure delegates that the Tories would aim to safeguard a 'stable' science budget, if they were elected next year. He praised Labour's current science policies, and reassured the room that there would be 'no great revolution' if they got in. He promised to release more detailed plans before the probable election in May.
