Gloucestershire | Cotswold Lib Dems condemm cost of library challenge
Councillor Jeremy Hilton, Liberal Democrat group leader, said: “During a time of great austerity, the costs that have been incurred through this legal challenge was needless, wasteful and nothing short of reckless.  If the job of reviewing the county’s libraries had been done properly from the start and not on the back-of-a-fag-packet then this money could have been better spent on new books for our existing libraries.”
