§ Lieut.-Colonel Sir A. WARREN
asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the inadequacy of the amount provided for the proper working of public libraries due to the limitation of the 1d. rate, he will say what steps he proposes to take to allow of the amount being increased?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I have been asked to answer this question. The subject of the limitation on the amount of the library rate is receiving the consideration of my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Education, to whom powers under the Public Libraries Acts are proposed to be transferred.
