I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement, but can he elucidate the rather confused position in London regarding the Mayor of London, the London boroughs and the surrounding boroughs?

In particular, can he look at central London, where property prices are beyond the capacity of anyone on a reasonable salary or wage?
