In your manifesto you pledged to "work constructively with the private sector to increase to 250 the number of companies offering the London Living Wage." But in the monitoring paper presented to the Investment & Performance Board, you are also counting third and public sector employers towards the target of 250. How many private sector employers in London are currently fully accredited with the Living Wage Foundation?

So far, 429 employers in London are fully accredited across all sectors. The private sector accounts for a larger proportion of London Living Wage employers than either the public or third sector. 194 private sector employers are accredited, compared with 164 in the third sector and 71 in the public sector.


The full list of employers will be published in my 2014 Living Wage Report.
