Future Provision of Library Services: Statement from Patrick Maddams, Sub-Treasurer of the Inner Temple, 10th December 2009

After lengthy deliberations, the Inner Temple and Middle Temple have concluded that none of the available options for a merger of their libraries and creation of an advocacy and education centre is sufficiently desirable to warrant further investigation and implementation. We have therefore agreed to bring to an end the negotiations which have been taking place under the aegis of the Joint Collaboration Committee.

We are aware of the great uncertainties these negotiations have caused to our library staffs and the Treasurers of both Inns would like to thank them for their professionalism and forbearance over the last nine months.

Any external enquiries about this decision should be referred to the Sub-Treasurer.
