Our Editorial in the Autumn number in which certain aspects of library educational policy were discussed, was based, as was indicated, on a Memorandum prepared by the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee which received some notice in the press. The Memorandum appeared quite portentous, but now we are informed on authority that “the ‘Parliamentary and Scientific Committee’ is a quite unofficial body—a mixed group of Parliamentarians and scientists, who try, quite usefully, to promote the interests of science. There is, therefore, no question of Government ‘accepting’ their recommendations. The Committee does not report to the Government, but to the world at large. But it is unlikely that any Government would think of setting up 20 degree‐granting technical colleges. It is also true that the Government has announced its intention to make further grants to a considerable number of Universities and also to some technical colleges, in order to encourage the development of technical education”.
