Council’s ‘million pound spending spree’ while libraries face closure
In today’s Wembley Observer, Tara Brady reports….
MORE than £1.2 million was spent on consultants by Brent Council during the same month it recommended to close six of the borough’s libraries.
Campaigners have expressed outrage at the amount the local authority paid out to obtain advice from private consultancy firms in March.
In the same month, a council report was published recommending the closures of six libraries to save the authority money despite mass opposition from the public.
