Mike has called on Green Cllr Christopher Hawtree to shelve his plans to cut Brighton & Hove Library services.

Green Cllr Christopher Hawtree, a former library campaigner who fought library cuts in light of a funding review, has performed a spectacular u-turn and is now cutting library services in the midst of a funding review. Cllr Hawtree, the Dr Beeching of Brighton & Hove libraries, is the Greens in-house library expert but is supporting the Green administrations plans to cut library services. Mike is calling on Cllr Hawtree to turn a new page and come out against these harmful cuts.

Commenting, Mike said: If Hawtrees library cuts become a reality the chapter will close on first-class library services for the city. Residents have consistently said to me that they dont want a reduced service and that is exactly what will happen if Hawtree gets his cuts. Quite clearly, it appears that the Greens have the manual on u-turns out on long-term loan.
