Administrative / Biographical History
The Greater London Council was established by the London Government Act 1963,which received Royal Assent on 31st July 1963. Initially, it was elected inmulti-member electoral areas comprising the whole of each London Borough, butthese were accepted as too large for genuine local representation, and from1973 the GLC was elected from single-member electoral areas, identical to theconstituencies used for Parliamentary elections.
The GLC was abolished in 1986, and most of its services transferred togovernment-appointed bodies. GLC members from inner-London electoral areaswere also appointed to the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) togetherwith one member each from the inner London Boroughs; in 1986 ILEA wasdirectly elected with two members returned from electoral areas identical tothe inner London Parliamentary constituencies (there had been a boundarychange in 1983). In 1990 ILEA was in turn abolished and responsibilitytransferred to the Boroughs.
