Budget 2011: £100m science sweetener after last year's £1.4bn cuts
"The government attempted to soften the blow of big cuts to national science facilities in the budget by pledging £100m for equipment and maintenance at four major research centres.
"The extra money - equal to the sum the chancellor put aside for fixing the country's potholes - follows a hefty £1.4bn cut in capital spending for science facilities that was outlined last year after the comprehensive spending review.
"Sir Paul Nurse, president of the Royal Society, said that in light of the reduction in funding already looming over facilities and equipment, he hoped the budget was "a first step in plugging that gap"."
