Yes, Sir, I will arrange for copies of the American Press summaries, which are prepared by my representatives in the United States and cabled daily to London, to be available in the Library. I will also arrange for copies of representative American newspapers and periodicals to be supplied to the Library, although, owing to war conditions, these will be several weeks old before they are available to Members.

While I thank my right hon. Friend, will he make sure that it is representative?
