No confidence in Ed Vaizey

This blog has been set up to rally support for a motion of no confidence in Ed Vaizey, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, submitted to the AGM of CILIP, the professional body for librarians.

Under the Public Libraries and Museums Act of 1964 the minister has the power to intervene if he or she feels that a local authority is failing to meet its responsibility under the act to provide a comprehensive and efficient service. In spite of cuts to the public library service on a scale never before seen, and appeals from campaigners around the country to act, Mr Vaizey has never used those powers. 

To see the scale of the devastation of our public libraries, you could do worse than to follow the posts at the publiclibrariesnews website, the most authoritative source of information.
