I think that would be much better. The second thing the Empty Homes Agency has picked up, normally from their hotline, is that there is great difficulty apparently with people who own empty properties getting information on what help is available, like grants for renovations. Kent, as I think I mentioned to you earlier, use a scheme called No Use Empty and I would like you to look at introducing a pan-London scheme in order to provide information which would encourage those people who either own empty properties or who are going to buy properties that are currently not fit to use as dwellings to upgrade their properties. Would you look at doing that?

If you have the Kent details and give them to me I will pass them to the Empty Homes Agency and say, 'Could they work this up and adapt it?' because if it is working elsewhere it should work here.
