Date13 June 1929
DescriptionDiscusses C. F. Thackray's film dealing with the relation of absorbable sutures to wound healing. Informs Thackray that it is unlikely the Royal Society will certify the film for customs duty exemption under section 8 of the Finance Act 1928 (for a film that is 'solely an illustration of scientific investigation') - but that Thackray could send additional information to try and change this case.
