The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) is the UK Parliament’s in-house source of briefing and analysis on policy issues with a basis in science and technology. After every general election, POST produces a special briefing highlighting some of the main science-based issues that the new Parliament is likely to encounter. Some have already been covered by POST in its series of regular briefings for parliamentarians (POSTnotes) and others will be the subject of future notes.
