On the BBC's Politics London programme, Caroline Pidgeon explained the damage the government's proposed immigration restrictions will do to London.
"We're built on immigration, and we benefit from it. We've heard about the NHS and social care - and what about construction? Who's going to build our homes that we desperately need? This system is not going to work for London - and London really drives the UK economy. If London starts to shrink, it will affect the whole of the UK. The government need to rethink this immigration policy."
