Labour's election manifesto promise to create a new strategic authority and an elected mayor for London would not materialise until at least the year 2000 if the party is elected, reported the Financial Times (April 26, p6).

Shadow environment secretary Frank Dobson told the paper that Labour could give 'no guarantee about just how quickly it will happen,' although he did say that the authority would happen within the first term of a Labour government.

A new authority would operate on the old Greater London Council boundaries at least initially, said Mr Dobson.
