The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has been asked about new research, funded by the Trust for London, which shows that a minimum of £6,549 is needed to cover a basic standard of living in the capital at the Mayor of London's Question Time on Thursday 23 June.
The question comes ahead of a webinar in which Matt Padley, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in Social Policy (Loughborough University) is set to present his findings. The webinar will take place on Monday 18 July, 10am, and will feature contributions from:
- Claire Harding, Research Director - Centre for London
- Sam Gurney, Regional Secretary – London, East and South East, TUC
- Julie Hutchinson, Deputy Chief Executive, East London Business Alliance
This will be followed by questions and discussion on the role of a minimum London Weighting as a tool to maintain and improve people’s living standards in the capital.
