HC Deb 30 June 1980 vol 987 c414W
27. Mr. Freud

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he proposes to increase the amount provided for authors under the public lending right to take into account the current rate of inflation.

Mr. Macfarlane

Within the Government's overall public expenditure strategy, and subject to the conditions laid down in section 2 of the Public Lending Right Act 1979, it is my intention to maintain as far as possible the value of the central fund.
