Stephen Knight AM: Thank you, Chair. Mr Mayor, one of the ways of increasing the supply of new affordable homes is to use the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) own land. When you first became Mayor in 2008, your manifesto made great play of the potential to use GLA-owned land to build homes on. In fact, you promised that you could build 39,000 new homes in London on GLA-owned land.
The actual figure that we have seen built on that land since 2008 is only 1,814 as of the end of March this year. Is that not a complete failure to use your own resource and to use the GLA’s resource to provide the homes that Londoners need?
