Answer for London Enterprise Panel

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are a number of small businesses represented on both the main Panel and the various sub-groups.  This includes the Chairman of the London Policy Unit at the Federation of Small Businesses who sits on the main Panel as well as two of the sub-groups.  All members are engaged in the decision making process of the LEP, which advises the Mayor.

 

In addition, one of the four priority areas of the London Enterprise Panel is Micro, Small and Medium Sized Enterprises.  Members of the LEP SME Working Group are drawn from a range of SME organisations and representative bodies. More information about the group can be found here:
