An enthusiastic audience heard Brian Taylor, BBC Scotland's Political Editor, deliver this year's National Library of Scotland Donald Dewar Lecture.

In a packed main tent at the Edinburgh International Book Festival on 23 August, it was clear the veteran political commentator had a good rapport with his listeners. A sign of the enjoyment on both sides was the lively question-and-answer session which followed his talk.

Examining 'the West Lothian question', Taylor expressed the view that all supporters of devolution should try to find a remedy. The English grievance at English matters being decided by Scottish Members of Parliament is 'rightly felt', he said.
