Steven Norris and Jeffrey Archer are on a shortlist of eight for the Conservative Party's candidacy for mayor of London, it was announced last night.

Conservative central office said the shortlist comprised: Lord Archer of Western-super-Mare, Robert Blackman, Andrew Boff, Bernard Gentry, Patrick Ground QC, Mark Kotecha, Steven Norris and John Wilkinson MP.

All eight will be interviewed on 6 September by an electoral college comprising the party's mayoral selection executive and a representative from each of the 74 London constituency associations. The shortlist will then be whittled down to three or four candidates.

A hustings meeting at which every member of the London party can vote will be held on 14 September. The two top candidates from that meeting will then be entered into a postal ballot of all the party members in the capital. The count and the announcement of the result will take place on 1 October.
