Continuing concern about the President's health has raised anew a problem that has smouldered in constitutional law certainly since 1881. At least twice in our history, there have been times when the President in office was incapable of performing his full duties for a period of many weeks. Professor Bartholomew examines the constitutional problems raised by this situation and discusses a number of proposals aimed at solving them.
