Answered By: 
The Mayor

During my previous term my focus was to encourage private sector businesses in London to pay the London Living Wage. In this new term I am committed to continuing this and to working constructively with London Citizens and other stakeholders to increase the number of London local authorities that pay the London Living Wage.
