Abstract

For thirty‐five years the Council of the Scottish Library Association fought for new legislation. Despite opposition from other bodies, refusals from succeeding Secretaries for Scotland to countenance differing proposals, and financial crisis and war, the Council never wavered in its campaign. Memorandum after Memorandum was produced, each succeeding version containing additional points.
