HC Deb 25 May 1972 vol 837 c444W
53. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will now introduce legislation to give effect to recommendations for authors to receive rewards for their individual works borrowed from public libraries; and whether she will make a statement as to future policy in this respect.

Mrs. Thatcher

The Government will consider their future action in the light of the comments which have been invited from interested organisations on the report, published last week, of a working party set up by my noble Friend, the Paymaster-General, and a statement will then be made. This report contains no recommendations.
