Question

Part of the remit of the Mayor's Housing Forum is to promote equality and diversity in the implementation of your housing strategy. As research by Stonewall and YouGov shows that almost one in five lesbian, gay and bisexual people expect to be treated worse than heterosexual people when applying for social housing, what plans do you have to give gay service users a voice in the forum?

My Housing Forum includes representative groups for lesbian, gay and bisexual Londoners. My combined Housing Forum and draft London housing strategy consultation event took place on December 12 and representative groups, who attend my Housing Forum, were invited.
