HC Deb 24 July 1970 vol 804 cc276-7W
Mr. James Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will implement the Robertson Report with particular emphasis to the setting up of a Library Advisory Council for Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

It has already been suggested to library authorities that they should adopt, as financial and other circumstances permit, such of the recommendations as they can implement of their own accord. I am at present considering the recommendations which will require action by me and I shall certainly bear in mind the hon. Member's views about a Library Advisory Council for Scotland.
