What conversations have you had with BusinessLDN on their manifesto for the new Prime Minister and how are you working with them to lobby the new Prime Minister for this support?

I wholeheartedly support and endorse BusinessLDN’s requests of the new Prime Minister: addressing the energy bill crisis, increasing access to high-quality affordable childcare, providing an affordable rail service, agreeing a sustainable funding deal for TfL, supporting people into work and reskilling, and building homes at scale.

I regularly engage with BusinessLDN, along with my Deputy Mayor for Business and officers, both directly and through bodies including the London Recovery Board, London Covid Business Forum, Skills for Londoners’ Business Partnership and policy work on economic development, skills and Net Zero.

I and my office will continue to work closely with BusinessLDN to lobby the government to take the urgent required action to help London businesses to weather the current cost-of-living crisis.
