We review a compressive model for material inertia and the effect of gravitation which follows naturally from it. We show that this model is consistent with the relativity principle, and suggest how a slight departure in the observed advance of the perihelion of the orbit of Mercury could put an upper limit on the Laplace screening parameter h.
