Brent libraries verdict on Thursday

Brent libraries verdict on Thursday

Judgement will be given in the judicial review case into Brent library closures on Thursday (13th October).

The judge, Mr Justice Ouseley, will deliver his verdict in the High Court on Thursday morning. The ruling will be the first judicial review judgement on council library closures to be delivered and will be watched keenly for its wider implications across the country. A judicial review ruling into Somerset and Gloucestershire's library closures is also expected in the next few weeks.

Brent library campaigners say they have now met their £30,000 target to meet their legal bills for the review, after a busy programme of fundraising events supported by authors including Alan Bennett and Jacqueline Wilson.
