The outbreak of war has necessitated the passing of a number of enactments dealing with the emergency which has arisen. Several of these Acts materially affect the jurisdiction and practice of the county courts and will be found printed together in the section at the end of this volume entitled Emergency Legislation.

Included in the section are the County Court (Emergency Powers) Rules, 1939 (with which are incorporated two sets of amending rules), and the County Court (Military Forces) Rules, 1939.

The Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Act, 1939, is included in Part V.

Other statutes passed during the year giving additional jurisdiction to county courts are the Building Societies Act, 1939, and the Prevention of Damage by Rabbits Act, 1939. These Acts, so far as material, are printed in Part IV.

The amendments to the County Court Rules made by the County Court (No. 1) and (No. 2) Rules, 1939, have been incorporated in the County Court Rules, 1936, which are now complete, and the whole volume has been revised and brought up to date.

The editors desire to express their thanks to Mr. F. G. Glanfield, LL.B., Senior Registrar of the Birmingham County Court, for the preparation of the Costs Section; to Mr. G. H. Main Thompson, Barrister, Assistant Registrar of the Admiralty Court, for the Admiralty Section; and to Mr. F. E. Ruegg, M.A., Barrister, who is responsible for the section dealing with Workmen's Compensation.

Joint Editors. December, 1939.
