TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Director, The National Physical Laboratory
Date16 December 1910
DescriptionThe Gassiot Committee had before them at their meeting a report upon the drainage and internal arrangements generally of Kew Observatory, and referred the matter to a Sub-Committee to enquire into, in consultation with H M Office of Works and with the Executive Committee of the National Physical Laboratory. The Gassiot Committee would like the National Physical Laboratory Executive Committee's attention called to the fact that difficulties arise in respect of making provision for testing work of the National Physical Laboratory, which has remained at Kew, and hope that they may remove the work from Kew Observatory as soon as possible.
