Past failings by Boris Johnson on housing must now be addressed – Caroline Pidgeon

Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on Sadiq Khan’s description of the previous Mayor’s ‘Concordant’ scheme to supposedly stop developers advertising London homes abroad first for overseas buyers as ‘toothless’ said:

“Sadiq Khan is absolutely right to criticise the weak measures adopted by the previous Mayor.

“Boris Johnson was twice asked by the London Assembly to investigate the impact that overseas investment was having on the price, affordability and supply of homes for Londoners.   He arrogantly ignored the London Assembly and refused to undertake this much needed research into London’s housing market.

“However criticising the last Mayor will not in itself deliver one more home for Londoners. Sadiq Khan must now set out how he will not repeat the mistakes made by the last Mayor.”
