THE EARL OF ONSLOW
My Lords, I beg to move, that this Report be now considered and adopted. The Report is in your Lordships' hands, and I do not think there is anything I need say in drawing your Lordships' attention to it, except as to the statement of the visit to the Library of the Friends of the. National Libraries. This is a new society that has been formed, and the Committee recommend that its request to visit the Library should be agreed to by your Lordships.
