British Laboratory Ware and Chemicals


THE question of the quality, supply, and prices of British laboratory glassware, porcelain, and chemicals, including research chemicals, is under consideration bv a committee of the British Science Guild. The committee, the chairman of which is Sir Richard Gregory, is anxious, in view of the conflicting statements which have appeared from time to time on these matters, to obtain the views of scientific workers who have experience of recent articles of the kind described, both of British and foreign manufacture. It is obvious that the information can be of use only when it applies to goods of definitely known origin. The points on which information is desired are:—The quality of the goods; their price as compared with that of imported articles of the same quality; the facilities for obtaining supplies; and the effects, if any, on research work of restrictions imposed on the importation of German goods. The committee would also welcome statements made, or reasoned conclusions arrived at, by competent bodies who have investigated these questions recently, and from manufacturers who wish to add any further definite information to that which has already appeared in the Press. The information should be sent to the secretaries of the committee, Prof. J. R. Partington, East London College, or Mr. C. L. Brvant, 23 Peterborough Road, Harrow, as soon as possible.
