- ANDY STRANACK, CONSERVATIVE candidate for the by election said in a statement to News From Crystal Palace::-
” I find Steve’s comments quite perplexing. As far as I am aware, the only legal notice that has ever been served was when Croydon served notice on Lambeth for breach of contract in relation to Lambeth Councillors not attend an AGM and meetings of the Joint Management Committee, which meant that a budget couldn’t be set. “If Lambeth have ever served a legal notice on Croydon with regards to the library perhaps Steve could provide the evidence.
” But I am more interested in talking about the library’s future than arguing about what’s go on in the past and political point scoring. “I’m really excited by the idea of Upper Norwood becoming a community library – I think this is a model that can be applied to lots of public services. “I’m looking forward to meeting with representatives from the Save Upper Norwood Library campaign to hear their plans and if I am elected as the next MP for Croydon North I would lobby all the councils in the area to provide sufficient funding to ensure that the people of Crystal Palace and Upper Norwood get the library service they deserve”.
