It has been revealed that 1,200 jobs in Havering are under threat from a “no deal” hard Brexit, according to new figures.
Statistics published yesterday (Thurs) by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, reveal the impact Brexit could have on the borough.
The new data predicts that if the UK leaves the European Union in March 2019 with no deal on the Single Market, Customs Union or transition arrangements, there will be 103,800 jobs in Havering in 2030.
However, if the UK was to remain in the Single Market and Customs Union, there would be 105,000 jobs in the borough.
Mr Khan said: “Havering residents and businesses will be shocked to learn of the huge economic risks – and human costs – at stake in the Brexit negotiations.
“It is up to the government to secure a Brexit deal that protects Havering from a decade of lower growth and fewer jobs.”
