Answer for London Living Wage and football clubs

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As I said in my previous answer, I launched the call for evidence on the Good Work Standard and I've been asking businesses, including all of London's professional football clubs, to advise me on what they think should be included in and promoted through it. The call for evidence closed on 18 September.

I will be encouraging all of London's professional football clubs to sign up to the Good Work Standard and pay the London Living Wage.
