Question

When you launched the London Delivery Board to end rough sleeping by 2012 you called on bankers to donate their bonuses to help meet the target. Have you had any conversations with banks or bankers about this issue, and are you aware of any significant sums being donated, since you made the suggestion?

This is a matter for individual conscience and any such gifts would primarily be to the charities with which I am working to end rough sleeping.
