Question

Your manifesto clearly states your pledge to "create 200,000 direct jobs through City Hall programmes" and yet paragraph 4.1 of agenda item 9 of the Investment and Performance Board's agenda for its meeting on 19 August 2014 states "the Mayor's manifesto commitment to create 200,000 jobs through GLA Group-led activity included estimates based on a mix of direct job creation with some indirect and induced job creation." Will you have this, and any other incorrect statements about your manifesto pledge to create 200,000 direct jobs, corrected?

I will create 200,000 jobs through GLA Group-led activity which has always included estimates based on a mix of direct job creation with some indirect and induced job creation.  This approach was outlined in my Manifesto.
