    Background: VOTING IS TAKING PLACE TODAY (THURSDAY) FOR THE ELECTION OF 100 MEMBERS TO THE GREATER LONDON COUNCIL, THE NEW BODY WHICH REPLACES THE FORMER LONDON COUNTY COUNCIL.

    ABOUT FIVE AND A HALF MILLION VOTERS ARE ELIGIBLE TO GO THE POLLS IN THIS ELECTION. THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL THE BRITISH LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS.

    FINE SPRING WEATHER BROUGHT QUEUES TO POLLING BOOTHS IN MANY AREAS, AND PART ORGANISERS ARE HOPEFUL OF A HEAVY POLL.

    THE NEW GREATER LONDON AUTHORITY WAS SET UP LAST YEAR BY CONSERVATIVE ACT PARLIAMENT. IT HAS 32 NEWLY CREATED ELECTORAL DIVISIONS COVERING AN AREA OF 700 SQUARE MILES.

    THE OUTCOME OF THE STRUGGLE FOR POWER IN THE LONDON COUNCIL, WHICH HAS BEEN LABOUR CONTROLLED FOR 30 YEARS, IS REGARDED BY MANY POLITICAL OBSERVERS AS A MAJOR CONSIDERATION FOR SIR ALEX DOUGLAS-HOME IN HIS CHOICE OF A DATE FOR THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION.
