In the early hours of this morning, Council officers removed the contents of the former Kensal Rise library. This is the last of the six libraries to be emptied. The books and other equipment will be redistributed to Brent's six seven day a week libraries for use by Brent library users.
I notice that it is still being alleged that this affects the reverter. In fact both Brent Council and All Souls College accept that the reverter was triggered some time ago. This is an irreversible process that cannot be "frozen" or otherwise stayed. The removal of the contents of the building has no bearing on the legal position. This has been made clear to various campaigners repeatedly. The action this morning was therefore simply the last stage in a process set in train by the Executive decision of April last year.
