AN international conference was held in London during July 5–10 to consider the problems which confront European meteorologists in the exchange of Weather information. The meeting took place under the auspices of the International Meteorological Organisation, which recently decided to establish a meteorological telecommunications panel under each of its six regional commissions. This was the first meeting of the panel for the European region, and it was attended by meteorologists and telecommunications experts from Belgium, Eire, France, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Norway (also representing Sweden), Poland and the Occupied Zones of Germany. Observers from the United States Weather Bureau and the International Civil Aviation Organisation were also present. Unhappily, the Danish delegate and his secretary were killed in an air collision over Northolt on the day before the conference opened.
