HC Deb 29 April 1897 vol 48 c1227
MR. J. G. WEIR (ROSS and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether he is aware that the library of the Edinburgh University is in a neglected condition, and that the busts of Royal Princes and other distinguished personages are in a discreditable state; and whether he will call upon the University Council to put the library in proper order?


If the hon. Member alludes to the condition and numbers of the books in the library, they are preserved and added to as well as the funds at command of the University for the purpose will allow. The other matters referred to by the hon. Member will receive attention when funds are available for the purpose.
