London Mayor Sadiq Khan has published a report which highlights the “crippling” effect that a “hard Brexit” would have on house-building in the capital. Mr Khan said that more than one in four construction workers in London are from the European Union and a loss of skilled workers could have a “seriously detrimental” impact on achieving the hundreds of thousands of homes the capital needs. The report also indicates that concern over housing is at its highest recorded level, with 37% of Londoners citing it as one of the most important issues facing the country.
