"Talent from around the world comes to London to be part of our tech scene.  It’s one of the key ingredients that makes London a global leader in tech, ranking ahead of New York and Berlin.  It’s meant that London has become home of some of the world’s most exciting tech businesses with a vibrant start-up community alongside global giants, such as Google, Facebook and Amazon.  

"However, the cost of housing in London risks undermining this.  Talent is finding the cost of housing an increasingly difficult burden.  And it’s not just impacting entry-level positions- more senior roles are also under threat.  This talent will be enticed to other cities around the world that offer a more affordable alternative, making London’s tech sector a shadow of its former self."
