Given your role in helping to bring forward public land to provide housing in London, do you either support Labour's General Election pledge to sell off public land that was contained in the party's manifesto, or do you support the party's more recent criticism of the sale of public land that was reported on 13 August 2017 in an Independent article titled 'NHS will be selling surplus land for at least 10 years'?

I want to see the public sector leading by example when it comes to releasing land for homes, particularly genuinely affordable homes, whether that be through direct delivery, procurement or disposal to developers.
