Culture, Media and Sport CommitteeWritten evidence submitted by Mr D J Williams

I do not need 1,000 words to submit my disclosure which is simple and therefore easy to understand. The disclosure is this:

The large increase in library expenditure in recent years is due to the apparent need to provide computer services for the public. The final result of this practice will be to close smaller libraries and thereby limit access to books to elderly or disabled people and who do not necessarily use computers. The people who use computers in libraries have access elsewhere.

We should get back to the original use to provide books.

Please do not discard this disclosure because it is not in the form you normally desire but consider my point seriously.
