Answer for Prime Minister's Digital Taskforce

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Yes. My officers have met with members from the Prime Minister's Digital Taskforce on a number of occasions.

With London's digital tech sector expected to create an additional £12 billion of economic activity, and 46,000 new jobs over the next decade I am committed to ensuring we become Europe's tech capital. We share many priorities with the Digital Taskforce and are keen to work together.

As well as feeding into the work of the Digital Taskforce, London is also well represented on Cabinet Office digital groups, including the Open Data User Group and Smart Cities Forum.
