Notes the discovery of evidence that English porcelain may have been manufactured at Bow, where 'moulds have been found whence China now at South Kensington is stated to have been made'. Adds that geologists at the Museum of Economic Geology have reported that the owners of the land on which the discovery was made want to advance research 'in the interests of English art'. Later notes the introduction of a railway bill making it compulsory to provide means of communication between guards and passengers.
