  • Very interesting and informative article but your information about John Laing Integrated Services running libraries is now incorrect, JLIS sold out to Carillion in Oct 13. Carillion now run libraries in Harrow, Hounslow, Croydon & Ealing, for more details see my blog http://dontprivatiselibraries.blogspot.co.uk/?m=1

  • I can't feel very sorry for Newcastle City Council having to find £50k of savings - they recently set up something called NNT law in which they sell legal services to local businesses. Surely there wouldn't be surplus time to sell if they employed the right number of lawyers?

  • I am always amazed at how little scrutiny the public sector applies to legal advice they buy from law firms. If there is going to be a big change in the market, I think it will be local authority lawyers finally challenging bad advice provided by private practice lawyers.
