Neither the Ministry of Supply nor the machine-tool manufacturers have accepted standard alignment tests for all machines and parts. It is not considered that any steps should be taken at the present time, and the existing safeguards and systems of inspection are in the opinion of this Ministry and of the other supply Ministries, adequate for the purpose.
