DIUS deceased

As was speculated this week the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills is no more. It is now merged into Lord Mandelson's BERR business department.

When public finances (and hence public services) are under-pressure, the short-lived DIUS cost over £7 million to set-up - around £10,000 per day over its short and unhappy two years.
