Cornish Lib Dems call for full debate on Cornwall Council's privitisation plans - - 30/07/12

"Liberal Democrat Councillors at Cornwall Council have called on the Conservative-led Cabinet to bring wide-reaching privatisation proposals before Full Council."

"A party spokesman said: "On Monday the Council’s ten-member Cabinet will decide whether to invite bids for the outsourcing of a number of key services, including Libraries, contact centres and IT provision."

"We are particularly concerned about the future of library and face to face services. Cornwall's Conservative leadership, which considered closing all but nine libraries just over a year ago, now wants a private company to run them as some sort of 'loss leader'. We cannot see anything but a bleak future under this privatisation proposal for a service we should be proud of."
