Abstract: Suppose a subset $ X$ of a Hausdorff [locally convex] topological linear space $ (E,\tau )$ is metrizable in its relative topology $ \tau \vert X$. It is shown that if $ \tau \vert X$ is separable, then there exists a metrizable [locally convex] linear topology $ {\tau _0}$ on the subspace $ V$ generated by $ X$ such that $ {\tau _0} \subset \tau \vert V$ and $ {\tau _0}\vert X = \tau \vert X$ (Theorem 2). This is related to a recent result of Larman and Rogers which states that if, in addition, $ X$ is locally bounded, then $ {\tau _0}$ can be chosen to be normable (but then not necessarily $ {\tau _0} \subset \tau \vert V$) (Theorem 1). It is then observed that $ {\tau _0}\vert X = \tau \vert X$ does not mean the coincidence of the corresponding induced uniformities on $ X$. However, this is the case if the invariant uniformity compatible with $ \tau $ is metrizable on $ X$ and $ X$ is convex (Theorem 4).
