HC Deb 06 June 1930 vol 239 cc2578-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent his department is co-operating with the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust; and what results have been obtained?


While the Board are fully appreciative of the efforts of the Carnegie Trust in the matter of the provision of libraries for seamen, the only occasion for definite co-operation with that body has been that the Board have sanctioned the expenditure by the lighthouse authorities of sums of money to meet the annual cost of renewing books purchased from capital grants made by the Carnegie Trust and of arranging for their distribution and collection. I have no reason to believe that the results are otherwise than wholly satisfactory.
