Elected to the Science & Technology Select Committee
07/07/2010 18:02:00

I have just learnt that I have been elected to the Science & Technology Select Committee.

Select Committees examine and report on the work of government departments. The Science and Technology Committee scrutinises the Government Office for Science, which is a semi-autonomous organisation based within the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills that supports the Government Chief Scientific Adviser and works to ensure that Government policy and decision-making is underpinned by robust scientific evidence. The Committee therefore has a similarly broad remit and can examine the activities of departments where they have implications for, or make use of, science, engineering, technology and research.

I studied theoretical physics at university and passionately believe that in areas like climate change, gm crops and stem cell research public policy should be evidence-based.
