85. Mr. ROBINSON
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the difficulty experienced by Sunday schools desiring to print their own hymnals in ascertaining whether or not a hymn is copyright, he will introduce legislation requiring that in all cases of publication of copyright hymns the word copy right shall be printed at the foot of the hymn?
Sir P. CUNLIFFE LISTER
I have been asked to reply. [HON. MEMBERS: "The Home Secretary!"] On this question of copyright, perhaps my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary may have preconceived views. No, Sir. The suggested amendment of the law would not, I am 1893 afraid, meet the difficulty, as it would give no indication of the duration of the copyright.
