Northants Library Enquiry
Northamptonshire is apparently facing a potential inquiry into its Libraries service as the entire authority seems to on the brink of falling apart. If ordered, it would be the first such order since the 2009 inquiry into the Wirral. It appears to have been triggered by a complaint from CILIP, which particularly highlights the idea that Northants is going through a financially driven closure programme without the normal considerations being examined. This strikes me as probably the most likely prospect of an inquiry being ordered since the Charteris report.
