Question

When responding to my initial questioning of your housing programme and its contribution to employment in London, you stated: ' ... there is no multiplication. We are not talking about jobs per year'. However, you later clarified that the estimates in your manifesto employ the ratio of 'up to two new jobs created for a year for every home built'. Given this admission, do you now accept that your housing programme is not going to employ 104,000 people by 2015?
