§ Sir M. Sueter
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the best of our younger scientists are being employed to counter new weapons like -the latest magnetic mine with speed and imagination?
§ Mr. Churchill
Yes, Sir. As my hon. Friend stated on the 6th December in reply to a question asked by my hon. 1221W Friend the Member for Stockport (Sir A. Gridley), not only is there a Department of Scientific Research at the Admiralty but in addition the advice of outside scientists and engineers is freely and frequently obtained on any particular problems.
