§ Mr. Hogg
The Royal Society has estimated that permanent emigration of holders of Ph.D.s and university staffs numbered, in 1960, 184 and, in 1961, 198. Incomplete figures for 1962 were 144. No similar information is available for qualified scientists other than these, nor are figures available for the years 1963, 1964, or for the period 1945–51.
