§ 26. Mr. Jim Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what plans she has to create a new library inspectorate. 
§ Mr. Sproat
I have no plans to create a library inspectorate. However, I take my statutory responsibilities towards public libraries seriously, and will continue to monitor the quality of the service through the professional library advisers in my Department, and to draw on the expertise and experience of the Advisory Council on Libraries.
