The research grants continue to flow into the Climatic Research Unit, at the University of East Anglia. According to FOI information I have received, they received a total of £361541 in the financial year 2011/12.
In the previous year, cost of salaries/employment costs were £530700, so research grants pay for 68% of this bill.
