[Letters to Editor]



Prof. BAYLISS'S letter in NATURE of May 6 raises a subject which is of the greatest interest to manufacturers, as well as to users of all classes of scientific apparatus. We do not think that anyone will dispute the contention that scientific workers should have the very best apparatus which is available, and wherever British apparatus is not up to the standard of foreign competitors there is no doubt that the importation of the foreign articles should be allowed. It is, however, quite a different matter when orders are placed by scientific workers, hospitals, etc., with foreign firms on account of the latter being able to quote lower prices than the English manufacturers can do at the present time.
