Mr. W. C. COCKING (Member of Council) proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Chettoe for the paper and said that all members present must have enjoyed, as he had, the opportunity of listening to a paper so full of practical engineering. He was sure also that very many of those present must have envied Mr. Chettoe the opportunities he had had of carrying out such interesting work as that described in the paper.

Mr Philip Reece (F): It has been mentioned already that the trussed rafter industry is now 15 years old, and I think it is by no means too soon for Mr Ransom to peer into the future and see what possible dangers are awaiting the use of the trussed rafter on a big scale. There will be, and are, plenty of legitimate criticisms. After 15 years, it is unlikely that such a revolution as we made in the building industry would go by without leaving some traces somewhere. But let us not lose sight of what the trussed rafter has achieved for us.
