Summary:
"By the 1980s, UK government science research laboratories were an often quirky but always essential part of the state sector. In one of the most radical experiments in the organisation and management of scientific research attempted in the United Kingdom, successive Conservative governments in the 1980s and 1990s sought to reform these laboratories by applying the market-based solution of 'New Public Management'.
