To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, if she will make an assessment of whether recommendations of Swindon Borough Council in its report, Securing a sustainable future for Swindon's Library Service, published in November 2016, comply with the duty to provide a comprehensive and efficient library service.

The Department is currently monitoring the situation in relation to Swindon Borough Council’s proposals for its library service. Subject to any decisions the Council’s Cabinet take, we will consider if further investigation is needed to determine whether there is serious doubt about the Council providing a comprehensive and efficient library service. I have met with the Hon Member for North Swindon and Swindon Borough Council's library portfolio holder to discuss the Council's proposals.
