I cannot confirm the proportion of funding that the London LEP is due to receive at this stage as we are in ongoing discussions with central government regarding London's settlement. This is a competitive process and we hope to secure the best possible outcome for London, following a strong bid submitted earlier this year. A final announcement will be made by government in the coming weeks.
