Are you doing all you can to get new homes built in London?

Yes. Not only are we doing all we can, but we are succeeding in building more of the homes that Londoners need. For example, last year my programme started three times as many homes based on social rents in London as were started in the rest of England put together. Through ‘Building Council Homes for Londoners’, the first-ever City Hall programme dedicated to council homebuilding, we also helped councils to get more new council homes underway than in any year since 1985.
