The Mayor
In response to: 

Commitment

Fiona Twycross AM:  Can you tell me how many of the 3 million families whom the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) has said will be hit by this change live in London?

Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London):  I cannot give you that.

Jennette Arnold OBE AM (Chair):  You should know.

Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London):  I would be happy to write to you with the details.  I do not have that figure off the top of my head.

Fiona Twycross AM:  If you could establish it?  Obviously, we know that previous changes to welfare disproportionately hit Londoners and about half of those affected lived in London.
