In the letter Mr Johnson said that “the Immigration Cap is likely to have a significant negative and disproportionate impact on London which will put the economic recovery at risk by creating skills gaps and placing London at a competitive disadvantage in the global competition for talent and inward investment. The economic harm of limiting the influx of workers from outside the European Union (EU) would be substantial given their vital contribution to UK economy, and disproportionately felt in London given their concentration in the capital.
Mr Johnson went on to call for a rethink of Government policy and added that business leaders were firmly on his side by saying “leading companies are unanimous in their opposition and are hostile to the proposal. They warn that the limit will damage small, medium and large businesses, prevent inward investment, talent and trade opportunities coming to London, and thereby materially damage London’s competitiveness”.
