LIbraries in Oxfordshire
Libraries in Oxfordshire could be saved after a cash windfall from the Government. The county council will receive up to £3.7million in grants which it could divert to meet the savings required of the library service. The council leader said: “It is highly unusual for government to continue to give councils grants long after they have set their budgets. I believe things have happened this way this year because the Government’s own budget-setting process has been complicated.” An unusual windfall? Government budgets complicated? A coincidence that Prime Minister David Cameron has his constituency in Oxfordshire?
