I will be addressing this issue in my first Mayor's Housing Strategy. This is scheduled for publication at the end of July 2007. Assuming that the GLA Bill has received Royal Assent at that point, it will be sent to the Assembly for statutory consultation over the summer and the Assembly's comments will then be taken into account when the strategy is revised for public consultation thereafter.
