The Commons Science and Technology select committee returns

The fact that Science thrives precisely when scientists are left alone must be one of the most annoying aspects of modern society for politicians to contemplate – especially when one considers how expensive it is. The temptation to tell scientists exaclty what they ought to be doing with the taxpayer’s money must be really strong (and understandable). So it is good that the Commons Science and Technology select committee has returned to public life in the UK. Hopefully it will act as a check on the power of government over the scientific community in this country.
