LIBRARIES: Closures 'could be illegal'

Oxfordshire County Council could face a challenge in the High Court over plans to cut funding for youth services and libraries.

Solicitor and county councillor Richard Stevens, who represents Oxford’s Leys and Lye ward, believes the scale of cuts proposed by the council could cause services to fall beneath the minimum levels required in law.

The Labour councillor believes campaigners opposed to the cuts could claim the reduction in services are illegal at a judicial review.
