DescriptionRefers to the application for £200 from Professor Whiddington. Explains that it has been under consideration by the Chairman of the appropriate Government Grant Board who raises two objections: 1) more detail is required before they can form an opinion on the scientific importance of the proposed experiments on X-rays and 2) the apparatus in question is perfectly ordinary and should already be present in any functioning laboratory.
