POST = Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology. I’ve always been slightly smitten with them as they produce a range of short (usually 4 page) briefing documents ‘POSTnotes ‘ about a huge variety of science topics, aimed at ministers and anyone interested. They also produce POSTbriefs – “responsive policy briefings based on mini-literature reviews and peer review.”
