Mr. Wellbeloved

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what financial support he will give to the Book Development Council.

Mrs. White

The Government have agreed to a non-recurrent grant-in-aid to the Book Development Council of £10,000 to be used towards the setting up of a Book Development Council Services Centre, the aim of which will be to increase British book exports. The grant-in-aid will be paid from the Civil Contingencies Fund and a Supplementary Estimate will be laid before Parliament in due course.
