HC Deb 08 May 1913 vol 52 c2233W
Colonel GREIG

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the desirability of stimulating public interest in the proceedings in Parliament and of enabling the electors to have full knowledge of those proceedings, he will make arrangements whereby copies of the Parliamentary Debates might be furnished daily to public libraries desirous of having them?


I am not aware of any general public demand for this concession, and I doubt whether the advantages to be gained would be worth the considerable expense involved if extensive use were made of the suggested facilities.
