Ken Livingstone to address the IPR Greater London Group

London mayor Ken Livingstone, who incurred the wrath of the PR and

public affairs community when he sought last year to ban lobbyists from

influencing the work of the Greater London Authority, is to address the

IPR Greater London Group on 14 January. Livingstone has already

confronted one group of foes by speaking at a fringe meeting at the Tory

party conference last October. He is now set to be a keynote speaker at

the event, set to take place in the Cochrane Theatre. The evening will

see an informal talk from Livingstone with the audience given the

opportunity to put questions to him. Likely areas of discussion include

the mayor's much-vaunted transport and policing policies, his attitude

to the Government's PPP proposals, and his controversial stance on

Britons captured supporting terrorist group Al Qa'ida. Of the IPR's

7,000 members, 2,200 are based in the capital, but the venue is

described by the IPR as 'intimate' - with scarce empty seats. Those

interested should contact
