Undoubtedly the question most pressing for a solution is the rate‐limit as it still exists in Scotland and in Ireland. It is characteristic of our piecemeal legislation that the freedom which has been given to England and Wales in this matter should still be withheld from the sister countries. The need of Ireland is particularly acute, and, unless something is done, the Dublin Libraries will soon be in a state of complete bankruptcy. The Library Association, we are glad to note, has addressed an appeal to the Secretary of State for each of these countries, and we hope that every effort will be made to secure a reasonable and prompt measure of relief.
