Court rules that a non-chemist can be a chemist
Some may remember the “reportage choc” in the Journal a few summers ago that alleged that some of the city’s swimming pools were veritable plague spots, bringing about early and, in some cases, lengthy closures.
Later, the man who had carried out the tests was shown not to be an accredited chemist at all and he was sued by the Order of Chemists. But now he’s won as a court has ruled that even though he isn’t a chemist, he can legally do a chemist’s work – including returning to the inspection of swimming pools.
Feels like something’s missing in this report, but I’m not sure what it is.
