Structural Engineering Research in Britain. Report of the Debate at an Ordinary Meeting of IStructE on Thursday 13 January 1966 on the Motion ‘That the initiation of research for the construction industry is best left to the research worker.'

Two Vice-presidents of the Institution initiated the debate on 13 January-Dr. A. R. Collins, speaking in favour of the motion, and Mr. Brian Scruby against. The following report of the proceedings is offered against the background of the note which appeared in The Structural Engineer, January 1966, p.3 and, as mentioned by Mr. Scruby in his opening remarks, in the knowledge that it was the Institution’s custom that the first Ordinary Meeting of the New Year should be conducted in a lighter vein.
