Covid vaccine would boost Central London recovery[1]

[Posted on : 2020-11-20 by Margon Wand] A major new report published today lays bare the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Central London – and the prospects of significant recovery saving thousands of jobs as a vaccine is successfully rolled out.

The report, carried out by consultancy Arup for firms in the central area, models the effect of the virus particularly on businesses reliant on “white collar” footfall, including retail, food and drink outlets, hotels and entertainment venues.

Its “worst-case” scenario, with lockdowns continuing through next year, forecasts an £84 billion hit to the central economy and 117,000 jobs put at risk, while an effective vaccine introduced in 2021 would see more office workers at their desks, the economy boosted by between £22 million and £41 billion, and between 31,000 and 57,000 more jobs safeguarded.

Sadiq Khan has 22-point lead in new London Mayor opinion poll[2]

[Posted on : 2020-10-22 by Munir Wahid] Sadiq Khan has extended his lead in the London Mayor election campaign to 22 points, an increase of two compared with last month, according to a new opinion poll.

The incumbent Mayor was found to be the first preference choice of 50% of the 2,000 Londoners polled by Redfield and Wilton Strategies, with his closest rival, Conservative candidate Shaun Bailey, static on 28%.

Luisa Porritt, the recently-announced Liberal Democrat candidate, and the Green Party’s Sian Berry are in joint third place with 10% each. Exactly half of the poll’s respondents said they are “certain” to vote in the postponed election on 6 May 2021.

The poll shows that Khan’s support has remained solid for the past three months in polls conducted by the same company, standing at 49% in early August and 48% in early September. Support for Bailey has also remained almost entirely unchanged, standing at 26% in the August poll and 28% last month.

Khan’s high level of support creates the possibility that he could win next May’s postponed mayoral election on first preference votes alone by receiving more than 50% of them, which would be the first time such an outcome had occurred since the creation of the mayoralty 20 years ago.

Mayor launches new £ 1million LEAP innovation grant scheme[3]

[Posted on : 2020-07-31 by David forthe] The Mayor of London and Chairman of LEAP, Sadiq Khan, has pledged to help small businesses and community groups in London not only recover from the current coronavirus crisis, but to ensure they are better prepared to future emergencies.

To support this ambition, LEAP has committed £ 1million to a new resilience fund, which is part of the wider London Growth Hub offering. The fund will help small businesses on Londons main streets and many local community groups keep pace with the accelerated pace of change after the pandemic and improve their own resilience to future crises.

Businesses, social enterprises and community groups will be matched with innovators to help them find new ways to deliver their products and services in these new circumstances. There will be grants of up to £ 50,000 to support the design and testing of these innovations.

Examples of innovations that could be supported by the fund range from new ways of capturing data and digital infrastructure (for example, to support the operational resilience of businesses) to ways of using data and technology to identify and address vulnerabilities in supply chains. supply, local production of food or energy.

Organizations that make the best use of data and technology have proven to be more sustainable in times of crisis.

The London Resilience Fund, which is funded by recycled investments secured by LEAPs £ 112million Growing Placed Revolving Fund, is the latest part of the Mayors and LEAPs plan to help small businesses and local communities in London to survive. and thrive after the pandemic. Yesterday the mayor announced that LEAP would use £ 1million to match the money the public has spent on the success of LEAPs Pay It Forward London crowdfunding initiative, and around 200 small businesses are expected to benefit . From the capital.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “The past few months have tested the resilience of London and Londoners like never before. As businesses and communities in the capital adjust to a post-Covid future, it is essential that we learn the lessons of the pandemic and ensure that we are prepared for the future. This fund will help our small businesses and local community groups better prepare for that future.

“Our small businesses and voluntary organizations are the lifeblood of our streets and communities. Many of them are now struggling to survive and I am determined to give them all the support I can.

Khan called responsible for lack of action in London[4]

[Posted on : 2020-06-07 by Aly Pyle] SADIQ KHAN has been warned that he is "responsible" for making face masks non-compulsory in London ahead of the governments decision to introduce a rule requiring passengers to wear masks on public transport.
The mayor of London was asked by Charlie Stayt of BBC Breakfast about the introduction of new measures which will make the use of face masks compulsory on public transport. The measure was unveiled by Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps at yesterdays coronavirus press conference and will go into effect on Monday, June 15.
Stayt said, “You are in a responsible position.

"What he seems to be saying is that he could have introduced this earlier, although I dont know what part of the public transport system is not under his control, maybe he can. set up for us.

"But you could have done something sooner."

Khan replied: "The suburban trains to London are not under our control and there are also great concerns that London has a different message for the rest of the country."

“The government has shown interest and I support it, having a national response on the shutdown and the easing of the shutdown.
