HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 c1856
37. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Minister of Education what consideration he has given to the problem of securing the just remuneration of authors and publishers for books supplied to public lending libraries, and to the idea of the establishment of a public lending right.

Sir D. Eccles

I met representatives of the Society of Authors and of the Publishers' Association at their request last week to discuss their proposals on these matters.
