Muslim Mayor to issue his own visas to import more Muslims
Khan vows to DEFY Brexit and offer City visas to "migrants"
(UK Express) - The London mayor said a team of business representatives were "working on a model that will ensure we can carry on recruiting and attracting talent".
When pressed on the issue of a separate work visa for migrants coming to work in the capital, Mr Khan said: "In principle I want to make sure that my job as the mayor means supporting businesses to grow and expand, encouraging business to come into London.
"The three most important words I say when I go around the world is 'London is open'."
The former Labour MP confirmed he was planning on discussing the notion with Theresa May.
Chancellor Philip Hammond, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson have all been in discussion with the Mayor of London about trying to secure the best possible deal for London.
Mr Khan said: "We are talking to business leaders, businesses, business representatives to see what we can do to make sure London doesn't lose out on the talent, the innovation the partnership that has let us be the greatest city in the world.
"The good news is the Government gets it. The good news is in all the conversations I've had with members of the Government, from the Chancellor to the Brexit Secretary to the Foreign Secretary and others in Government, I think they get it.”
The mayor said it was “crucial” for London to be given the chance to recruit the best people from around the world.
