    No news, sadly, but that was predictable. I would have liked to hear about plans to increase funding further. Current funding isn't enough to make a difference fast enough.

    At least we were represented and acknowledged which is something.

    I agree that research has to be done properly, and that we are starting from a very low base.

    But lack of research funding is a major factor in that low base. Provide the funds, and the researchers will come.
