Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am pleased government has agreed to give me as Mayor substantial influence through the new skills and employment board, which I appoint and chair. The board will direct the priorities for the London LSC 19+ skills budget. I believe these new arrangements will allow me to drive real improvement and will keep their effectiveness under review.
