§ Mr. Maclean
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will make a statement on Cumbria's first Annual Library Plan. 
§ Mr. Alan Howarth
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has sent every library authority, including Cumbria, both an overall appraisal of all the 1998 Annual Library Plans and individual feedback about their own. The individual feedback is confidential, but each authority can publicise their own if they wish.
