asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress is being made on the remaining technical investigations being carried out in connection with public lending right.

I recently visited libraries in Welwyn and Tottenham where procedures for recording book loans and purchases respectively are undergoing practical tests, and discussed the results so far with those involved. Findings on some other topics under investigation will shortly be reviewed by the Technical Investigation Group. The programme as a whole is running to schedule and I expect the investigations to give clear indications by the autumn on which the Government's detailed legislative proposals can be based.
