The British Government has slashed the funding of scientific Research Councils by Ł68 million. The Research Councils most affected by this include the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, which has been hit by a Ł29 million reduction in funding, and the Medical Research Council, which is seeing a Ł10.7 million reduction in funding. The response of the BBSRC biological research council announces that the council will have to cut 20 new grants and reduce expenditure on new equipment.
