HC Deb 27 June 1907 vol 177 c68

To ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will state the total number of public library committees in Scotland, the number on which women are members, the total membership of library committees, and the number that are women, distinguishing between those that are members of the elected bodies and those that are co-opted.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) The information required by my hon. friend is not available; and, although I recognise the interest that such information would possess, I do not consider the collection of the statistics would justify the amount of labour that would be entailed.
