Fifth Anniversary Of Glc Abolition

EDM number 674 in 1990-91, proposed by Tony Banks on 27/03/1991.

That this House notes that the Greater London Council was abolished by the Conservative Government on 31st March 1986; recalls that the abolition was an act of political malice conceived by the unlamented and discredited former Prime Minister and carried out against the wishes of a majority of Londoners; further notes with anger that London is now the only capital city in the world without city-wide local government, a sense of identity and a voice of authority; observes with displeasure the unco-ordinated and unplanned nature of London and the dramatic deterioration in the quality of life in the capital; suffers with fortitude the daily horrors of London transport, pot-holed, crime ridden, litter-strewn congested streets and low grade architecture; calls upon the people of London to ensure a Labour government at the coming general election; and notes with satisfaction the Labour pledge to restore strategic local government to the once proud capital city.

This motion has been signed by a total of 73 MPs.
