NOW that the Edinburgh Conference has come and gone I suppose there is no particular harm in summing it up as unusually interesting from the social point of view, that of necessity owing to the American and other visitors, but in no way outstanding from the point of view either of the discussions or the papers. The presentation of the Government Report by Sir Frederic Kenyon was of course important, but no one could say much of the discussion of it. In the nature of the case discussion of the detailed recommendations of a long Report of this kind by a large meeting could never be anything else than perfunctory, particularly seeing that it is safe to assume half the audience had not read it, and the other half had given no adequate consideration to it.
