Dr King, who is well respected in this field and was previously head of the Drugs Intelligence Unit in the Forensic Science Service said:
There is a very strong feeling among the council's members.I'm not going to say just how many I think might resign but there is an extremely angry feeling among most council members.Amongst the scientists, I think a number will resign. It doesn't need the whole council to resign for the thing to stop working.
It will be interesting to see how many more members of the ACMD do the same in the coming days. The government has made it clear that they are not interested in their evidence so it would seem the logical thing to do.
