A Summary of Laws Particularly Relating to
Edmund C. Rawlings,
Solicitor of the Supreme Court.
LONDON: NATIONAL COUNCIL OF
THE activity of Free Churchmen in affairs affecting the social life of the community necessitates frequent reference to the laws relating to social questions, and I have endeavoured to include in this volume a concise statement of such of those laws as I believe to be of particular interest to social reformers and Protestant Nonconformists.
In my work I have been assisted by several friends whom I desire to publicly thank for their help. Among them I may mention Mr. A. W. B. Welford, M.A., Barrister-at-Law, who has performed a good deal of spade work for me; Mr. J. Bamford Slack, B.A., who has read my pages and made notes to assist me; and the Legal Committee of the National Council of Free Churches, which has undertaken the publication of this book.
I trust that this work will answer many questions which Free Church Ministers have frequently to consider, besides being of use, also, to those Laymen who take an interest in public affairs.
E. C. RAWLINGS.
