London is not yet prepared to exit the European Union, the boss of a major restaurant chain has warned.

Robin Rowland, CEO of Japanese chain Yo! Sushi, said he believes the capital is “woefully underprepared” for Brexit.

He said he fears ministers are not aware of the challenges they face while implementing Britain’s Exit from the European Union. 

Mr Rowland said: “There will be a huge scramble for people who are qualified to do jobs, unskilled work is also going to be desperately in demand. 

“I think we have a major problem that I’m not sure the Government has a clue about how to face.”

Mr Rowland was speaking to business interviewer and debate host Michael Hayman on London Live’s Capital Conversation – a new series starting on Tuesday, August 1 at 7pm.

Anchored by Mr Hayman, who has interviewed business leaders from around the world and chaired London’s mayoral debate for the tech industry, the show aims to “showcase the best in business and convene leaders at the heart of London’s most exciting success stories.”

Mr Hayman is also the co-founder of campaigns firm Seven Hills and the national initiative for early-stage firms StartUp Britain. He is also the co-author of Penguin Business best seller, Mission: How the Best in Business Break Through.
