Brent libraries ruling put back to October

The judge handling the Brent libraries High Court judicial review case will give his judgment in October, it has been confirmed.

Mr Justice Ouseley had initially indicated the judgement might come as early as this month. Brent council has promised to keep the six libraries threatened with closure open until the decision is given.

The judicial review hearing was held in July. Gloucestershire and Somerset councils' library service plans will go to judicial review at the end of September.
