Governance & Public Services

With public spending facing further cuts, we explore the challenges for London’s governance and its wider public sector. How can public services cope with rising demands? How can we create more effective, responsive and innovative services? Could further fiscal devolution help tailor London’s public services to the capital’s needs?
