10,000 Jobs

Asked Of: 
The Mayor


For MQT 1596/2012 I asked, 'Why did you claim, during the election, that you would create 10,000 Olympic legacy jobs, when the London Legacy Development Company had announced this in October 2010?' Your answer was, 'Please see my response to oral MQ 1319 /2012.' The only mention of the Olympics in that oral response is, "Ensuring a true Olympic legacy, that is obviously to come. Some of those homes are there already but there will be, altogether, 11,000 new homes and 10,000 new jobs." I do not think that this actually answers the question I posed, so can you therefore answer the question, without referring to previous MQT answers?

As I made clear in my response to MQ 1319/2012, my answer is that my nine point plan is an eight year project, some of which has already been done, with the great bulk of it yet to come.
