This is interesting:
In case you’re wondering, here are a few more details:
“Lancashire County Council have had their government funding cut by a further £262 million & are now only able to provide statutory services. As a result of funding cuts, 40 libraries & several important museums across Lancashire are to close. Lancashire’s (& Britain’s) history is being thrown away.
“The library & museum closure programme;
• is a disastrous decision for both Lancashire & the North West
• County Museum Service has been carefully & professionally built up since the mid-1970s,
• consider likely response of bodies such as HLF who have invested £millions,
• was regarded as one of the finest public library services in Western Europe,
• libraries are community hubs,
• closure of 40 libraries challenged under 1964 PLMA legislation
• over 100 libraries lost last year, 441 since 2010”
I took the above from a UK government e-petition calling for the Conservative Government to “Stop Lancashire’s tragic library & museum closures by proper government funding”.
Mr Maynard is invited not to participate.

Southport lost 3 libraries and a museum at the flick of pen.
And quite right too, why on earth did they invite him in the first place, the so called new caring sharing Tories are a charade a clever act of compassion, they will stab you in the back at the first opportunity , believe me I have personal experience of it here in Bracknell. David Penson
He looks another clueless, useless politician, signed the petition.
Libraries here in the North East where I live are being closed down too.
