Political parties on Suffolk libraries

20 Apr

After a little hustling, we are pleased to have elicited the following policy statements on libraries from the three opposition parties in Suffolk County Council. Remember, the present dominant Tory council has:

  • cut the funding to libraries by a third,
  • privatised the service to a high-risk, untested (sorry, “imaginative”) Industrial & Provident Society,
  • withheld a further £100,000 from the IPS, which is expected to be raised by “community groups” around the county.

The facts need to get out there to voters before they fill in their Postal Votes, or go to the ballot box on Thursday May 2, 2013.
