CSL closes in Government economy drive

THE Central Science Laboratorys (CSL) food research complex at Norwich is to close, agricultural minister Jack Cunningham has announced.

It carries out food research designed to protect consumers, crops and the environment.

The closure is part of a Government economy drive. Dr Cunningham said the budget had been hit by increasing demands from work on BSE in which the CSL was not involved.
