Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.

Motion made, and Question proposed, That the Bill be now read the Third time.--[ Mr. Dowd. ]

I beg to move,

That this House, whilst accepting the principle of a representative body to speak for London, declines to give a Third Reading to the Greater London Authority Bill because it provides for an Authority elected by proportional representation, which will lead to weak government and disproportionate influence of minority parties; because it introduces road user charging which will not solve the problems of congestion or pollution in London; and because it provides wholly unsatisfactory arrangements for the future of London Underground which will not receive the necessary funding or management under the Government's proposed Public Private Partnership, thus burdening Londoners with substantial levels of debt from the outset.

It being Ten o'clock, Mr. Deputy Speaker put the Question already proposed from the Chair, pursuant to Order [30 April]:--

The House divided: Ayes 105, Noes 265.
