Answered By: 
The Mayor

My officers are working closely with Hammersmith & Fulham Council which is committed to achieving the best regeneration outcome for residents of the estates.

At present I consider this will best be achieved by the council remaining as landlord. Although ultimately the decision on this issue rests with the Secretary of State.
