Mayor Sees London Poorer After Brexit

The U.K.’s departure from the European single market will make London poorer, the capital’s mayor told CNBC.

Speaking exclusively to CNBC Thursday, Sadiq Khan said that leaving the single market “would be bad for London.”

“I accept the case that the British public have voted to leave the European Union, to leave the structures of the legal institutions. What the British people haven’t done is to vote to make us poorer,” Khan said on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
