In order to alleviate the storage problems at the British Museum in London, England, it empowered the trustees to remove "newspapers and other printed matter which are rarely required for public use" to a new storage building at Hendon, on the condition that suitable arrangements were put in place for these materials to be consulted at the main buildings on request. These are to be found in the British Library Newspapers section located in Colindale.
The Act was repealed by the British Museum Act 1963.
