Local authorities are not obliged to consult the Secretary of State about plans for their library service. However the Department has received correspondence from library users in areas of the north-west where library closures have been proposed. Lisa Nandy secured an adjournment debate on 25 January about the future of library services in which she and other hon. Members from the north-west region spoke about the library service provided to their constituents.
