LABOUR DEAL WITH CORPORATION TO SHARE GUILDHALL FOR GLA

London's historic Guildhall would be offered as a home for an elected authority for London in a spirit of cooperation between Labour leader Tony Blair and the Corporation of London, reports The Times (p11).

The paper says the gesture is a powerful endorsement of Labour's plans for London, which include the retention of the City of London in a reversal of past policy.

Chair of the City's policy and resources committee Michael Cassidy says he has received a written request from Labour to share the premises as a new home for a Greater London Authority

'We will look at this very sympathetically. Guildhall has an aura of history about it. We are prepared to share out chamber for meetings. We will make office space available for the elected mayor and for the administration of the authority. We will be delighted to work together,' he said.
