Answered By: 
The Mayor

The decision was taken last year for the calculation of the London Living Wage to become aligned with the method used to determine the Living Wage for the rest of the UK. The Living Wage Commission now has direct responsibility for setting the rate. My Deputy Mayor Joanne McCartney represents me on the Commission and ensures that the rising costs of living in London are reflected in their calculations.
