I recall there being an ASTOR Assistant Directorate in MoD(PE) in the mid-late 80s. It was the Director's baby. He retired about 1990, and started at the company in the US the next week.

My first question would be is the 800M to manage the research, or do it as well?

The important issue at present is to get it enshrined in law. Then one can look to enact and enforce the law, which is an even bigger battle. Both main parties (in England and Wales) have proposed...

In the days when the BBC actually broadcast live test match cricket, I used to run home from school hoping to see Edrich bat, or Derek Underwood bowl. Very sad, but he played a good innings.
