Notes, topics or text 

"Unfortunately, the future of the Russell Press is in some peril, as a result of two serious threats. Firstly, there is a problem of complex tax litigation. Gifts made by Bertrand Russell before he died enabled the press to be established. ... At the same time, the local authority have placed a compulsory purchase order on the building which houses the press, which, if upheld, will compel it to move to new premises which will be greatly more expensive than its present ones."
