Abstract

Dr Parke emphasized the great variety of intelligence work, anything from a few reference books in a manager's office to a full‐grown section with a staff of two dozen or more, and from close attention to the detail of a single department to the whole interest of an entire works. It appeared that the officer (especially in a new post) had to take the field offered to him and try to cultivate it by friendly helpfulness and increasing knowledge, by developing in the factory the habit of using his section and by making the habit worth while. Aslib members and intelligence officers were well aware of this but it was their function to make it widely known. In this they had the encouragement of such authorities as Sir Edward Appleton, Sir Henry Tizard and the Lord President of the Council.
