DATE: Wednesday 26 October  
TIME: 9.15am-5pm
VENUE: Room 405, Lionel Robins Building, LSE

LSE London will be hosting the London Conference on Wednesday 26 October.

The conference will be opened by Jim Fitzpatrick, the minister for London talking about the Government's review of the Greater London Authority's powers, followed by Tony Travers, LSE, on Whitehall, the GLA and the Boroughs: what works and what doesn't. In the afternoon Ken Livingstone, the mayor of London will present his proposals for London's government.

This event has been arranged to consider the government's review of the GLA's powers and duties. The proposed reforms will directly involve London boroughs, the GLA and Whitehall. The quality of government that emerges from any changes will affect the private sector and voluntary organisations.

Speakers also include Bob Neill, Conservative Leader, London Assembly; Hugh Malyan, London Borough of Croydon; Sally Hamwee, House of Lords and London Assembly; Jacqui Lait, Opposition Spokesman on London; Michael Cassidy, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry; Ian Gordon, LSE; Stephen Glaister, Imperial College; Christine Whitehead, LSE; Nick Raynsford, MP; Edward Lister, Leader, London Borough of Wandsworth; Len Duvall, Chair, London Labour Party
