Library Call In
The Library Call In on Wednesday was quite subdued compared to the rowdiness of the Executive and Full Council meetings. As with the other 23 calls in last year, most of the councillors who signed the call in chose not to attend the debate that they had called for. Aside from the members of the Committee, we had only Cllr Reg Colwill (Tory), Cllr Jack Beck (Lib Dem) and Cllr Barry Cheese (Lib Dem). The deputations took two and a half hours, with only half an hour spent on the actual report. Cllr Harshi Patel was particularly ill served, as the Chair refused to allow him to propose a recommendation.
