Answer for Brent and Harrow

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My programmes will continue to help tackle poverty across London through economic growth and by driving up employment opportunities and educational standards. For instance, local economies will be strengthened and jobs created through my Regeneration Fund and Outer London Fund. Boosting apprenticeships will provide further opportunities for young Londoners and my Education Delivery Plan will drive up standards in London's schools, boosting attainment and giving every child the chance to succeed.
