THE desirability of fostering scientific research as a result of experience gained during the war was recently urged upon various Government Departments by the British Association. There is reason to believe that measures are being taken to this end in various directions; in particular, the association has received from the Admiralty a communication in the course of which it is stated that the authorities there “are keenly alive to the supreme importance of research in its bearing on naval requirements, and that the organisation of suitable arrangements for this purpose is now engaging, and will continue to engage, their earnest attention. Rapid progress is now being made in the elaboration of a complete scheme which will provide, on one hand, for systematic and continuous development in research and experimental establishments controlled by the Department, and, on the other, for an effective relation between these establishments and scientific institutions throughout the country.”
