Question

Thank you for your commitment to liaise with the Living Wage Foundation to look into collecting data on low pay and self-employment. There are concerns that the Living Wage Foundation does not yet collect this data for employees let alone the self-employed. I am sure that you will agree that with detailed up to date data, we can fully understand the scale of the issue facing London and how best we can assist. Can you tell me when the Living Wage Foundation will start to collect robust data on this issue?
