UK government calls for more public debate on science
The UK Trade and Industry Secretary Patricia Hewitt has called for greater public engagement and dialogue on science to help retain the UK's attractiveness in this field. Her statement comes after a new survey has shown that only 40 per cent of UK adults consider themselves well-informed about science.
Helen Haste, the association's chair, welcomed Ms Hewitt's comments, explaining that the Association is working towards a culture of openness in which scientists talk about stem cell therapy, nanotechnology or animal cloning in public forums.
