Tube issue is key says Livingstone


KEN LIVINGSTONE launched his independent candidacy to become Mayor of London claiming that the impending battle with Labour's official candidate Frank Dobson would be settled on the issue of Tube ownership.

He told a press conference that plans for a Public Private Partnership for London's Underground were 'unsafe and inefficient' and that he would 'fight to keep the Tube in the public sector as one coherent organisation'.

Livingstone confirmed that more detailed transport proposals for London would be included in his manifesto to be launched on 4 April.
