Great Barrier Reef Committee.
Report of Representative.

One meeting of the Committee was held during the year. The Chairman (Professor H. C. Richards) reported that the results obtained from a very full and complete scientific investigation of the boring material from Michaelmas-Reef and Heron Island, prepared by himself and Dr. Dorothy Hill, were ready for publication. The chemical analyses of the samples had been carried out by Government Analysts. Publication was authorised. Other reports on Foraminifera had been published or were in hand. The financial statement showed a balance of £1,847 6s 4d, £800 of which was in bonds.
