The Independent (Feb 15, p21) ran a commentary on traffic gridlock in London, arguing that no public bodies seem capable of tackling the problem.

'The abolition of the Greater London Council in 1986 left no single authority able to take a strategic overview of London's traffic problems,' writes Randeep Ramesh.

'Instead there is a minister for transport in London, an advisory and planning committee (LPAC), 33 local authorities - often with competing interests - and a cabinet sub committee chaired by John Gummer, the self-styled minister for London.'
