Support the CSIRO

The Prime Minister’s response to complaints about his failure to appoint a Science Minister was to say that the government should be judged by its performance in the area of science, rather than whether it has a Science Minister.

Following the 2014 Budget we are now, regrettably, in a position to assess its performance. The CSIRO Budget is to be cut by $116 million over the next 4 years. Indeed more than 500 jobs, about a tenth of the CSIRO workforce, will go.
