Libraries, Bookshops and Booksellers


House of Lords Debate:
13 October 2016
Volume 774
Motion to Take Note
    Moved by

  • That this House takes note of the cultural, civic and educational significance of libraries, bookshops and booksellers in the United Kingdom 
  • My Lords, I come here to talk about poverty—the poverty of our streets, the poverty of our libraries and the poverty of our bookshops. If we do not sort out our libraries and bookshops, and if we turn our high streets into places that are denuded of bookshops and our libraries are closed down, we will have a real problem in other areas.
