Science Policy Discussions in Parliament

Dr Michael Booth, researcher in the Bayley Group, represented the Royal Society of Chemistry at the Voice of the Future event in Parliament on 13th March. Organised by the Royal Society of Biology on behalf of the science and engineering community, this ‘question time’ style annual event reverses the format of a normal select committee – so that MPs answer questions rather than ask them.

A recording of the event can be watched on Parliament TV. more........
