asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware of the shortage of text books for elementary and secondary schools in Newport; and what steps are being taken to meet this demand.

There is a general shortage of school text books but I am not aware that there is any exceptional shortage in the Newport schools. I am at present considering with my right hon. and learned Friend the President of the Board of Trade what can be done to increase the supply of this type of book.


asked the Minister of Education if he is now in a position to state what steps are to be taken to improve the supply of text books for educational purposes.

No, Sir. The discussions between my Department, the Board of Trade and the publishers are not yet complete.
