HC Deb 25 June 1974 vol 875 c391W
27. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress has been made in dealing with the problem of public lending right.

Mr. Hugh Jenkins

In reply to a Question by my right hon. Friend the Member for Vauxhall (Mr. Strauss) on 9th May—[Vol. 873, c. 241–2]—I said that the Government intended to introduce legislation on PLR as soon as details had been settled and there was parliamentary time. I expressed the hope that it would be possible to introduce a Bill this year. Discussions on detail are in progress with the various interests concerned in pursuance of that intention.
