Street crime and civil disorder top list of risks facing the capital’s businesses and workforces

Four in 10 Londoners have cited civil disorder as a “great threat” following the riots of early August – with the figure rising to 46 per cent among business owners, managers and proprietors across London and the South East.

The findings come from a major new ComRes survey commissioned by LondonlovesBusiness.com.

More than a third of business executives across London and the South East also cite street crime as a great threat to enterprises and their staff.

In contrast, just 26 per cent of Londoners – and 21 per cent of owner managers/proprietors – felt that business crime presented a great threat.

Read the full survey findings only on LondonlovesBusiness.com, including:

  • Fight strikers and stop Whitehall ripping us off, London businesses tell the next mayor
  • Boris’s eight-point lead over Ken as the mayoral battle commences
  • Forget the Estuary Airport and sort out London’s roads, Londoners tell mayoral candidates

The LondonlovesBusiness.com ComRes online survey was conducted among 401 members of the public and 260 business leaders living in London and the South East between August 9th and 11th this year. The poll complements an additional survey of 501 London business leaders and 501 members of the public living in London online between July 25th and August 2nd. The results of this survey will be published on LondonlovesBusiness.com over the coming days.
