TitleDraft report of the Royal Society Committee on Procedure
Date15 February 1917
DescriptionDiscusses the new Statute 12, explains what led Council to alter it, and thinks that too much importance is being placed on the Statute - that it is 'mainly to give guidance with respect to the type of man it is desired to include' in the Royal Society. Suggests that there is no danger of the Royal Society lowering the standard of Fellows it elects.
