TitleReferee's report by Edmund Taylor Whittaker, on a paper 'Probability and chance in the theory of statistics' by Maurice Stevenson Bartlett
Date[May 1933]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Refers to work of Ronald Aylmer Fisher and Harold Jeffreys. The discussion of the subject has been extensive but inconclusive, and it might be time to halt further acceptance of papers on the subject. If this has not yet been done, the current paper is a worthy addition to the discussion.
