§ Mr. Boyden
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the Army libraries he proposes to close; and, in each case, what is the proposed date of closure and the number of users the library is now catering for.
§ Mr. Ramsden
In the interests of economy, consideration is being given to the greater use of public libraries in England and Wales by military personnel where this is convenient. Consultations with local authorities have not progressed sufficiently far for me to state the effect of this on the Army Library Service.
