To date I have not had any discussions about the National Gallery becoming accredited to pay its staff the London Living Wage. I will continue to campaign for London's Living Wage to be paid by all employers in London. 

I have not made any representations to the National Gallery about its decision to move 400 of its 600 staff to the private sector.
