§ Mr. John Wells
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will publish a table in the OFFICIAL REPORT showing, on a monthly basis, the number of books missing from the House of Commons Library over the last two years.
§ Mr. Crossman
It is not possible to give the figures required on a monthly basis since the check on the number of books missing from the Library takes place annually during the Summer Recess. The total number of books found missing at the 1964 check was 2,138 and at the 1965 check 2,380.
