London needs a full time Mayor
Commenting on Boris Johnson's intention to seek a return to Parliament in 2015, Colin Stanbridge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) said: "It is disappointing that the Mayor has announced his intention to run for Parliament next year. London business needs and deserves a Mayor giving their undivided attention to the problems facing the capital.
"Solving the chronic undersupply of housing that is pricing out skilled workers, delivering a reliable, frequent and expansive transport network fit for a thriving global city, and fighting for the capital to have more autonomy over its own finances and economic future is a full time job."
