“Innovation is the way we drive growth.” ?

The PM did say lots of lovely things about Science but what he didn’t do was answer my question about Horizion ! The Tories just aren’t serious about science when it comes to actions not words.
The Government’s mishandling of the Northern Ireland protocol negotiations is acting as a barrier to trade deals and scientific collaboration. The Prime Minister says that he was much influenced by his time at Stanford, so surely he understands the key role of science and scientific research in driving economic growth, which we sorely need. Will he really exclude British scientists from the world’s biggest scientific research programme, Horizon?
