Public Library Subsidy

Please be aware from the 20th September 2015 the Public Library Subsidy will no longer be eligible for a large number of official publications. Publications which are freely available on the internet will not be covered by the subsidy.

To include:

  • Government Command and House of Commons Papers
  • Parliamentary House of Commons and House of Lords Papers
  • House of Commons and House of Lords Bills
  • Statistical publications
  • Gazettes
  • Other organisational publications which are only published online

See the ‘Important changes to the Public Library Subsidy’ letter dated 20th March 2015 to interested parties from  Malcolm Todd, Head of Information Policy.
