Wyre and Preston North MP Ben Wallace has asked Culture Minister Karen Bradley to investigate Lancashire County Council’s decision to close numerous libraries including Fulwood library.
He said: “I am trying as hard as I can to persuade the Minister to make the County Council stop their plans. I have been contacted by a number of concerned residents in relation to the Council’s decision to close library services across Wyre and Preston, including Thornton and Fulwood libraries.
“Like residents I feel very angry about the County Council’s actions. I have written to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, urging the Minister to investigate the County Council’s position as the statutory provider of library services.”
