§ 5. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has for the expansion of the National Library for Scotland to keep step with the proposed increase in the number of places in Scottish universities.108W
§ Mr. Brooman-White
The Trustees of the National Library are fully aware of the needs of higher education in Scotland and the Library will, I am sure, play its part in meeting them. I understand, however, that the need in this particular connection is not so much for physical 109W expansion of the Library as for extension of facilities available to readers. With this in mind, the Trustees intend to keep the reading room open for longer hours for an experimental period beginning in October.
