Abstract: Let be a manifold approximate fibration between closed manifolds, where , and let be the mapping cylinder of . In this paper it is shown that if is any concordance on , then there exists a concordance such that and . As an application, if and are closed manifolds where is a locally flat submanifold of and and , then a concordance extends to a concordance on such that . This uses the fact that under these hypotheses there exists a manifold approximate fibration , where is a closed -manifold, such that the mapping cylinder is homeomorphic to a closed neighborhood of in by a homeomorphism which is the identity on .
