The Greater London Council, Britain's first regional author- ity, set up in the 19GOs, is now trying to slow down the decline. Recently the government an- nounced that it would allocate an extra to the urban program for health and welfare projects (a relatively small sum in relation to what is need- howcver, Ihe problems of in- creasing population and Ihc flight from the cilies are dwarf- erl by the per cent increase in car owners: from six million to 12 million over Ihe decade. terns are being deprived of Ihe labor market from which I hey recruit employees.

The result can be seen in the j heavy road-building program I which is covering much of the countryside with concrete (the government recently announced plans for another miles of national motorways) and in the new m'ban motorways which have cut a swalh through Ihe centres of Birmingham, Liver- pool and Glasgow, and which are being strongly opposed by amenity groups in London. It can also be seen in the financial and labor difficulties of Ihe urban public transport systems. The systems are be- ing deprived of many of their customers, and so, for example, the people are losing bus ser- vices which no longer pay their way.
