Will my hon. Friend join me in welcoming the fact that, over the last eight years, the current Mayor of London has built more than 100,000 affordable homes? Moreover, the public land database established by the London Land Commission, supported by the Chancellor, will reveal that there is space for another 400,000 homes on brownfield sites. It will show that not only the Transport for London land that was mentioned earlier by my hon. Friend Bob Blackman but other public land will be publicly available to enable the next Mayor—who we hope will be my hon. Friend Zac Goldsmith—to deal with the housing crisis.
