Question

In Hackney, 26% of the population has never used the internet, the local youth unemployment rate is unacceptably high, and high tech employers have told the Assembly that there aren't enough local people with the skills they need. What are you doing as part of the Tech City initiative to redress these issues and ensure it benefits local people?
