Answered By: 
The Mayor

Research about London’s construction industry shows that the sector relies heavily on trained EU workers and EU imported materials. A no-deal Brexit is likely to disturb the supply and importation of materials and labour for remediating ACM cladding on tall buildings. My team has raised the potential impact of a no-deal Brexit on the Private and Social Sector Cladding Remediation Funds to Government officials. I will continue to call for the British public to be given a final say on Brexit and I will campaign for us to remain.
