PPARC to be abolished!

Well, not quite, but that's what the rumour was this morning. The Chancellor's budget speech today apparently mentioned this but, after some digging, it seems that the suggestion has been made to merge the CCLRC (Central Laboratory of the Research Councils who run places like the Rutherford Appleton and Daresbury labs, and Chilbolton Observatory) and PPARC (Partile Physics and Astronomy Research Council who fund UK observatories, including MERLIN, our suscription to ESO, and a large proportion of astronomy research in the UK) to create a Large Facilities Research Council. Read the relevant report on the Treasury's website.
