HC Deb 01 April 1903 vol 120 c791

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will grant the Return referring to rural libraries in Ireland which is on this day's Paper.†


The Act has been adopted in nine rural districts, the names of which I have communicated to the hon. Member. It does not appear that a rate has yet been levied in any of these districts for the purposes of the Act. A Parliamentary Paper containing this information seems hardly necessary.
