"London is a city that is increasingly expensive to live in; it's also a city of both low pay and extreme wealth. Greens believe there is a need to make sure that those who look after the capital and provide our essential services can afford to live in London," said Jenny.

Jenny spoke at the recent CWU and Unison rally held today.
