Question

With regards to your response to question 2015/1939, I am aware that responsibility for national policy on zero-hours contracts is held by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skill (BIS). However, my question was whether you believe the policy referenced could be applied to London and what steps you could undertake to make this happen. Can you please answer this question?

As this is national policy I will leave it for BIS to decide whether they feel the New Zealand model could be adopted within the UK. If they do come forward with proposals that include London I will consider these carefully.
