The last ordinary general meeting of the Institution of Structural Engineers, for the 1923-24 session, was held at Denison House, Vauxhall Bridge Road, London, S.W.1, on Thursday, May 22, 1924. The President (Major James Petrie, O.B.E., M.Inst.T., etc.),
occupied the Chair, and a paper on “Economics in Concrete,” by Mr. B. Price Davies, F.S.I., M.S.A., M.R.San;I.,A.M.T.P.L., A.I.Struct.E., was read, and the following discussion ensued.

Major W.H. Smith
