HC Deb 01 February 1962 vol 652 cc108-9W
59. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that all the local newspapers and journals are placed upon the reading tables in the public libraries of Malta and Gozo except the Labour papers Voice of Malta, Il-Helsien and The Whip, and that a special request has to be made to the librarian by any reader who wishes to see them; and if he will take steps to see that the same facilities of access are granted to all papers.

Mr. Maudling

No newspapers are placed on the reading tables in the public libraries in Malta or in Gozo. In both these libraries, however, all newspapers including those supporting the Malta Labour Party, are available on request from the library attendant.
