Sir: Donald Macintyre (23 May) is right to identify the European elections of 1999 as an opportunity for Labour to introduce a pluralist voting system.But there is an earlier opportunity.

The Queen's Speech offered the people of London the opportunity to set up a strategic authority for our capital city. Labour is producing a consultation paper in July. To establish a strong, consensus-seeking assembly which will work with rather than in competition to a newly elected London mayor, we need PR for London.
