The date of the proposed first elections for the new mayor and assembly in London has been announced by deputy prime minister John Prescott.

Speaking during the Second Reading of the Greater London Authority Bill, Mr Prescott said:

'Subject to the passage of this Bill, they will take place on Thursday 4 May 2000, the normal date for local elections.

'In less than 18 months, the mayor and assembly will be elected to give London the strong leadership and democratic accountability it so desperately needs.'

NOTES

1. The Greater London Authority Bill was published on 3 December 1998.

2. The mayor and the assembly would be elected at the same time and for periods of office of four years.
