Question

Government figures suggest that 18,260 homes of all tenures were completed in London in 2014-15, of which 6,100 were by housing associations and local authorities (live table 253). But GLA figures suggest there were 18,614 affordable housing completions alone in that year. There is always a discrepancy between government and GLA figures, but this is very large. How do you explain this?
