🚨Warning from @TheIFS that inner London boroughs are likely to see further cuts to grant funding under the Fair Funding Review🚨

Levelling up should not mean taking more funding away from local government in areas of high deprivation.

With footfall still down across the #WestEnd, there is now an inarguable case for an online sales tax enabling targeted relief for bricks and mortar businesses so they can compete on a level playing field with internet retailers. My view in today's @FT

This huge investment is a vote of confidence in central London.

The pandemic is likely to lead to a lasting change in how we use offices. But demand for office space remains strong.

Fantastic to see Google showing confidence in our capital. I welcome this major investment, which means exciting new jobs and economic prosperity for Londoners. Tech investment has a huge role to play in building a fairer city for everyone as we recover from the pandemic.

We need to see a fair and sustainable long-term funding settlement for TfL.
