Question

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." Yet you continue to report against this target by including public and third sector employers, for example in the Q3 report on KPIs at your Investment and Performance Board. Will you correct these papers so that, for example, in that report it shows you on track with 232 private sector employers so far?

The GLA KPI reports the 'The number of employers signed up to the London Living Wage' which includes private, public and third sector employers. A breakdown of the numbers of private, public and third sector employers has been included in the commentary section of the Q3 KPI report. I am delighted to report that more than 250 private sector London employers have now signed up to the London Living Wage.
