Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am determined to tackle youth unemployment in every borough.

In relation to 2007-13 European Regional Development and European Social Fund programmes that I manage, monitoring data shows that boroughs with higher levels of deprivation and unemployment also have the largest amount of beneficiaries.
