§ Mr. Andrew Turner
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions if he will list those local bodies which were set up under legislation which is the responsibility of his Department and its predecessors since May 1997. 
§ Dr. Whitehead
The Greater London Authority Act 1999 created the Greater London Authority and its five functional bodies: the London Development Agency, the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, the Metropolitan Police Authority, Transport for London and the London Transport Users' Committee. As far as I am aware, there are no other bodies at local level, created under primary legislation which has been introduced since 1997 and is the responsibility of my Department.
