Will you ensure that the package of private rental reforms for London also include much greater security of tenure and stability for London’s houseboat communities, who currently enjoy even fewer statutory protections that typical private tenants?

I am aware of concerns about rent rises on boat moorings and issues of security of tenure. Whilst I do not have any direct powers over moorings on London’s waterways I will keep this issue under review.

GLA officers will continue to engage with those responsible for managing the waterways to ensure that the interests and concerns of Londoners are represented.
