Greater London Authority (Referendum) Bill — 24 Nov 1997

Mr Ian Taylor MP, Esher and Walton voted in the minority (No).

Question proposed , That the clause stand part of the Bill.

However, our own discussions have shown that many of those who support a Greater London Authority do not wish to go so far outside the British tradition as to support the idea of a directly elected mayor--which does have some dangers of landing us--

Question put, That the clause stand part of the Bill:--

The Committee divided: Ayes 291, Noes 154.
