|Description||Harrison highlights the need to remedy the lighting in the tea room, which since it has become the default room for Committee meetings is poorly lit for the purpose. The issue lies in both poor distribution of light and in old fittings, which date from the time when the Royal Society first made use of electric lighting and made its own current in the basement. He proposes a good central light, similar to that in the saloon upstairs, and a couple of wall plugs for the use of table lamps at meetings.|
The cost of these changes will not fall in that year's accounts, and Harrison urges that it should be arranged prior to the new session being 'in full swing'. He asks for Kempe's approval to obtain a rough estimate, and they can discuss finer details afterwards.
