§ MR. CALEB WRIGHT (Lancashire, S.W., Leigh)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he has provided in the Estimates for supplying Parliamentary Returns of Expenditure for County Government, and Returns of National Expenditure, to Mechanics' Institutions and Free Libraries, in accordance with the promise made last Session?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
(who replied) said: The hon. Member is, I think, in error in supposing that such promise was given as regards Mechanics' Institutes; but some provision has been made in the Estimates for Papers such as he describes for Free Libraries.
