Legal Background

WithDennis Swann, Denis P. O’brien, W. Peter, J. Maunder, W. Stewart Howe

I believe that the law, although deeply rooted in the history of the institutions of our country is not an heirloom which is to be taken down, dusted, reverently considered and placed back. I believe that the law is as effective a dynamic force in modern problems as it is soundly based on these historical roots. Therefore I believe that the law should be brought in to help in the solution of the great problems of a modern State. This is one of the great problems, and therefore the solution which I advance to your Lordships is one which provides for those affected the best machinery for arriving at the truth and reaching justice which the world has so far devised.
