Question

The Government will consult on a new policy whereby local authorities will be expected to permission land outside their plan on the condition that a high proportion of the homes are offered for discounted sale for first‑time buyers, or for affordable rent. What are your views on this, and what do you expect the effect of this proposed policy will be on Londoners?

Whilst in general I welcome measures which increase the number of genuinely affordable homes delivered in London, it is difficult to tell from the budget documents how this proposal will work in London. I await further detail on this.
