Professor S. Mackey (F) : My main concern is to learn why, in Britain, limited records of wind and pressure measurements are being extrapolated to such a degree that if applied to Hong Kong conditions would render economic design of buildings impossible.
By any standards bomb damage is a messy business. Even when considered by the structural engineer back in his office and away from the debris and the broken glass, it is untidy and presents problems that are far different from those entailed in the design of new works.

In recent months Sir Kirby Laing, Sir St. John Elstub and Mr. A. G. Milne, as Presidents respectively of the Institutions of Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers have been considering the future organization of the profession. At the beginning of July Sir Leonard Atkinson, as Chairman of the CEI, invited the presidents of all 15 CEI constituent institutions to consider an analysis of what was seen by the three Presidents as being the current problem. At that meeting it was arranged that the respective Presidents would consult informally with their Council colleagues and return to the matter at the end of September.
