Three London councils previously criticised by the Conservative party are to be awarded the Prime Minister's highest accolade for outstanding public service, the charter mark.

The Guardian (p2) reports that Islington, Southwark and Haringey LBCs are at the top of the list of 47 award winning Labour controlled local authorities to be announced next Monday.

The paper's information comes from a cabinet office document leaked by the councils to Labour environment spokesman, Frank Dobson.

Mr Dobson told the paper: 'This shows how 'notorious' Labour authorities deliver really good services. Luckily the decision is made by independent judges who cannot be influenced by the Tory party chairman...What a contrast with the water companies, which have been struck off, and British Gas, which retired hurt.'

Wandsworth and Westminster LBCs are also reported to have won awards.
