Only 1% of councils intend to opt for a directly elected mayor, a Local Government Association survey shows.

Around 79% of the 347 councils that responded intend to have a cabinet with a leader.

Those opting for a mayor is slightly lower than when LGC published the preliminary results last year (26 November 1999).

The survey showed 32% of councils consulted the public on their proposal, while 29% had implemented it by 1 October 1999.
