What does this mean for London?

One of the UK’s largest business organisations has called on the government to provide stability for businesses regardless of a “soft” or “hard Brexit”.

London Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive Colin Stanbridge said: “Businesses have put up with too much uncertainty for too long. We hear businesses talk about deals and orders being put on hold because of the unknown.

“What we need now is some clear direction, however it is labelled. The current political situation is hugely frustrating result businesses, only creating more uncertainty on top of the recent impact of the referendum vote, increasing costs and currency fluctuation. 

“There is no time to waste in establishing a good deal for London in the Brexit negotiations and protecting the country’s economy but protecting the capital’s economy.

“Pivotal to that is infrastructure investment in London as well as securing the rights of EU national in the UK as well a ensuring we have access to skills in the necessary numbers to protect our workforce.”

“We must also look to equip the next generation with the skills it needs to succeed.”

Before the election London Chamber of Commerce and Industry published its London Business Manifesto “Capital Matters” setting out its key asks for the next Government to ensure that London continues to maintain its status as a globally competitive city.
