Small slip, quickly corrected

Perhaps it was a rounding error

The Academy of Science corrected its budget commentary yesterday to remove a reference to a CSIRO funding cut. Turns out the supposed $21m reduction was in total agency expenses over the forward estimates, not to government funding which is indexed and will increase. Industry, Science and Technology Minister Karen Andrews was on to it quick-smart yesterday. All was politely resolved by lunch-time. Sort of mistake easily made, CMM certainly has been known to.
