HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 c1121W

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the increasing difficulty of local authorities in maintaining their public libraries by reason of the limitation placed on expenditure for such purposes, he will at an early opportunity introduce legislation for the purpose of removing the present limitation of expenditure for library purposes?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Aberdare on the 30th July on this subject, of which I am sending him a copy.
