Europe and Brexit report from City Hall, December 2016

The Assembly is continuing to scrutinise the implications of  Brexit. Please see our work programme.

The big news (though it seems some time ago) was the High Court decision, to give Parliament a vote over the triggering of Article 50 and the Brexit Process.

The Chancellor’s Autumn statement also gave cause for concern for the economy, due to Brexit.

Three reports have been published on the issue of migration: by the City of London (I hosted an event at City Hall, to launch the City’s report); the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry; and the Centre for Economics and Business Research.

I also raised the ‘London Visa’ issue at Mayor’s Question Time.

At the Economy Committee, I raised the impact of Brexit on the London labour market and employment rights.

The Economy Committee has also published a report on Brexit and financial services.

I also raised a number of written questions about various Brexit implications in two batches.
