I am really pleased that we have agreed to deliver this. I argued for a commitment to explore paying the Living Wage in Labour's manifesto for the 2011 city mayor and council elections.
Paying the Living Wage was also included in the recommendations of the Leicester Child Poverty Commission which I chair.
On Friday I signed the formal decision notice confirming that the council will be paying the Living Wage from 1st April this year.
