When you responded to the Government's Right to Buy consultation in February 2012, you argued for replacement homes to be 'where they are needed most and in the form that they are required'. The pattern of sales and replacements could undermine your planning and investment policies for mixed and balanced communities and overcrowding. But the Government only publishes statistics on the total number of homes sold and replacements started, and only at the local authority level. Will you work with London Councils to establish a monitoring protocol to capture more precisely the size and location of homes sold and started through Right to Buy in London?

If this is something that London Councils and the boroughs are interested in developing, then I would be happy to work with them.
