Surely the Minister is well aware of the housing crisis that exists in London with the lack of rented accommodation through councils and housing associations. What is he prepared to do to enforce further building by local authorities and housing associations? Is he prepared to call in all major planning applications in London that do not meet the Mayor's target of 50 per cent. of all new housing being for people who are in desperate housing need rather than for those who can afford to buy luxury accommodation?
