For the third time, LCCI and London Councils have commissioned leading polling company ComRes to undertake a survey of one thousand London businesses. This year’s survey provides an update on businesses’ approaches to recruitment and the impact of the Apprenticeship Levy. It also considers the interaction between businesses and London boroughs, measuring the satisfaction rating for a range of local government services, as well as business support for giving London councils greater local control across a range of activities.
