Mr. O. S. Puckle, of R. F. Equipment, Ltd., Langley Park, Nr. Slough, Bucks, recently invited inquiries from engineers and others wishing to study for science and engineering degrees (Nature, April 12, p. 497). He now states that he has received a total to date of ninety-three completed questionnaires. Of these, fifty-one are from the London area, including Dartford and south-west Essex, and ten from Stoke-on-Trent. The numbers in each of the other localities are too small to make it possible to ask the Ministry of Education to take action; but it is hoped that in London and Stoke it may be possible to arrange the suggested courses. He is communicating with the Ministry of Education, to whom the questionnaires and an analysis of the results are being sent. Those who have not yet returned the questionnaires for which they asked should do so immediately, especially if they wish to take courses in the London area or in Stoke.
