  • By Anonymous (not verified)

Responding to the EU Referendum result, London Councils' Chair, Mayor Jules Pipe, said: 

"The result of the EU Referendum makes it vital that London's government - the Mayor and the boroughs - work closely together to sustain the growth and success of our city in this new environment.

"It furthers the need for us to press for a devolutionary settlement that allows London to make the sort of contribution that our country needs and to ensure that the focus is not just upon the transfer of powers between Brussels and Whitehall.

"It is critical that London and local government more generally has a seat at the table in the discussions and negotiations that will follow."
