§ Mr. RAMSDEN
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?
§ Major ASTOR
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.
