Question

You have a manifesto commitment to create 20,000 part-time jobs, including 7,500 across the GLA Group, by 2015. In your answer to my question 2013/3936 on how many part time jobs you have created so far, you told me how many jobs were created in 2012/13 and informed me that 23% of total employment in London is made up of part-time workers. That did not answer my question. Do you not know how many of the jobs created by GLA Group projects are part-time? If not, how will Londoners know whether or not their Mayor has fulfilled his manifesto commitment?

GLA and functional body performance measures do not currently record details of whether jobs created are part-time. However, we are exploring whether the performance measures reported by projects and programmes can include part-time jobs.

As set out in my previous answer, I believe I am on track to fulfil my manifesto commitment in this area.
