Alan Turing's original proposal for the development of an electronic computer, which he presented to NPL’s Executive Committee on 19 February 1946. A month later, the Committee voted unanimously to support the proposal.

The proposal was published on the Engineering Sciences Group’s 1972 Open Day, in recognition of Turing’s pioneering work.
