Excerpt from Shipbuilding and Shipping Record, Vol. 11: A Journal of Shipbuilding, Marine Engineering, Docks, Harbours and Shipping; June 6, 1918 The last portion of the report deals with the supply of trained scientific workers of all grades for industrial and other purposes, which is described as a matter of the utmost gravity and urgency, since for the prosperity and safety of the country after the war the development of the resources of the Empire and the production of our industries must be on a. Scale greatly in excess of anything we have hitherto achieved. A number of reforms are outlined which must be effected if the supply of scientific workers is to be increased. But it is pointed out that if science is to come by its own the nation as a whole must be brought to recognise the fundamental importance of the facts and principles of science to the right ordering of our national life. The requisite training and opportunities must be provided for those who are capable of advancing natural knowledge or acting as scientific experts, but it is no less important to secure for all who are of an age to receive it an education that will enable them to realise the vital need of a knowledge of science for both the individual and the national well-being.
