HC Deb 14 June 1915 vol 72 c501
51. Mr. E. JONES

asked the Prime Minister whether he is prepared to invite Lord Haldane to preside over a Special Commission, formed for the purpose of concentrating to the fullest extent the scientific intellect of the country upon research, invention, and discovery related to the materials, agencies, and processes that might be employed to enable us to win a complete triumph for our arms, in spite of the inhuman but nevertheless highly scientific, ingenious, varied, and continuously novel agencies of war used by the enemy?


The existing machinery for this purpose appears adequate. The creation of an additional body would not, I think, prove to be of advantage.
