HC Deb 18 November 1952 vol 507 cc1567-8
25. Mr. Erroll

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why the total expenditure on the National Library, Scotland, increased from £61,787 in 1951–52 to £87,654 in 1952–53.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am glad to be able to inform my hon. Friend that the increase in estimated expenditure on the National Library of Scotland for the year 1952–53 is due almost entirely to the progress that is now being made with the Library's urgently-required new building.
