Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset 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--
