HC Deb 09 March 1961 vol 636 cc661-2
15. Mrs. White

asked the Minister of Education what steps have been taken to implement the recommendation of the Roberts Committee that there should be special training in librarianship in Wales.

Sir D. Eccles

I agree that the problems of training Welsh librarians deserve special attention, and I am considering whether any action can be taken in advance of legislation.

Mrs. White

The right hon. Gentleman has already had two years to consider this recommendation. Will he undertake that the matter will be dealt with urgently, in view of the bilingual problem in Wales?

Sir D. Eccles

I am doing my best, but at present I have no power to compel anybody to put on a course.
