GLC Abolition and London's Future
EDM #816
Tabled 29 March 1990
1989-90 Session
There has been an amendment to this EDM.
That this House notes with approval, but not surprise, the latest opinion poll by Mass Observation indicating that 64 per cent. of Londoners want a strategic body able to plan the capital city; believes that London's traffic chaos, inefficient and expensive transport system, rising crime rate and general tackiness amount to a serious deterioration in the quality of life in London over recent years; further notes the fourth anniversary on 31st March 1990 of the Greater London Council abolition, making London the only world capital without city-wide government; endorses the Labour Party's policy statement, London Pride, which promises the creation of a strategic authority for London responsible, amongst other things, for transport, regional planning, roads, the police, fire-service and waste disposal; and looks forward to the election of a Westminster government which will strengthen local democracy rather than continually abusing and undermining it.
