The Safeguarding of Research


    THE fact that the Bill for the Safeguarding of Industries has passed its second reading in the House of Commons has directed renewed attention to the manner in which its provisions will react on the prosecution of Scientific research in this country. It will be remembered that the supply of scientific apparatus and chemicals was the subject of a discussion in our correspondence columns about a year ago, and we have received many further letters showing the importance of the question. In NATURE for June 9, p. 457, attention was directed to the formation of a committee of the British Science Guild to report upon the matter. We hope that all our readers who have knowledge of facts bearing on the problem, or suggestions to offer, will give this committee the benefit of their views.
