- Reports the publication of the third annual report of the British Medical Association’s ‘Committee of the Privy Council for Scientific and Industrial Research’, which it refers to as a ‘department’. Notes that ‘The Department has also established, jointly with the Medical Research Committee, an industrial fatigue research board with Professor Sherrington as chairman. With the board is associated a panel of representative men and women from each of the industries being studied, who will join the board as each trade in turn comes under review. It will investigate the relations of the hours of labour and of other conditions of employment, including methods of work, to the production of industrial fatigue, having regard both to industrial efficiency and to the preservation of health among the workers.’ (291)
