"Following news on 'Barnet Eye' that the Judge has granted the 'licencees' occupying Friern Barnet Library a 21-day adjournment to prepare their case to remain in the Library, Leader of Barnet Labour Group, Cllr Alison Moore said:
"We’re really pleased for the local community. It is unfortunate that the council is persisting with their move to evict the ‘licencees’ – the legal action could cost thousands in council tax-payers money, when the occupiers are saving the council £600 per day in security costs for the building, and they are also providing a library service to local people.
The eviction action should be stopped while negotiations with the 'licencees' continue."
