Last year Dr Matt Frost spent a week in parliament shadowing the local southeast Cornwall MP Sheryll Murray. On Tuesday May 29 it is her turn to shadow Dr Frost.

Sheryll Murray will spend the day at the Marine Biological Association's Plymouth laboratory learning about science-policy interactions, meeting experts who can provide evidence on policy issues, and find out about the science behind the issues raised by her constituents.

The visits are part of a Royal Society scheme pairing scientists with policy-makers that gives policymakers and research scientists an opportunity to experience each other’s worlds.
