Sectional committee: Physics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings, in full. The title should be changed, with 'at low velocities' being dropped. [Title changed to 'Electron scattering in helium' upon publication, in accordance with this view]. The paper seems incomplete and some points should be more definitely settled.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1931].

Endorsed on verso as received 22 July 1931.
