What was said:

Sue Terpilowski OBE, FSB London Policy Chairman said: “The FSB welcomes the drive by all Mayoral candidates to raise the issue of affordability and availability of commercial space…London's ecosystem relies on small businesses providing jobs to employees travelling one, two, three or even four hours a day. We cannot afford to lose small businesses from the central zones.”
