The Government is already taking action against the billions of pounds worth of UK property accumulated by the Russian state-linked individuals and companies. We have frozen the assets of those individuals on the sanctions list and are taking further steps on land ownership transparency through the Economic Crime Bill. We will set out details in due course. If the Mayor of London wants to make further suggestions via his office, he is welcome to get in touch with my officials.
