asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many libraries or reading-room centres have been established overseas by the British Council?
The British Council have founded 67 libraries and reading-room centres overseas. They supply additional books and current periodicals regularly to these, as well as to 17 libraries attached to Anglophil societies and to a large number of university and school libraries.
Is this not exclusive of centres of occupied Europe established before the war?
Oh, yes, I think so.
