HC Deb 03 March 1919 vol 113 c60W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has received any representations calling attention to the inadequacy of the penny library rate; and whether he will consider either the entire removal of any limitation of the rate or its very substantial augmentation?


A few representations have been received, but my right hon. Friend has no indication of a widespread demand among local authorities for an alteration of the rate, which would require legislation.
