Helen Goodman MP became (Labour) Shadow Minister for Culture, Media and Sport last autumn. She has now started consulting on public libraries. Unfortunately her questionnaire has been circulated only to library staff organisations (CILIP and Unison).

We think this is a serious mistake. She needs to know as soon as possible what library users and campaigners think. So here is her questionnaire : 6.14-Letter-on-Libraries-Helen-Goodman.pdf.

The deadline is unrealistically tight –30 June. But you might have time to send your thoughts (emails to bonnie.burke@parliament.uk).

Meanwhile, we have asked Helen to arrange a proper consultation with library users and campaigners as soon as possible.
