Increasing London’s affordable housing targets misses the point


I completely agree with Paul that central government needs to become actively engaged and provide significant funding, coupled with an active role in delivery. The Mayors policies are otherwise well intentioned but likely to be ineffective. Sajid Javid seems to be trying. With £70bn of debt moved off the books today, prior to the budget, perhaps, finally the Chancellor is getting on board? If only the conservatives can move away from the 'home owning' neo-Thatcherite rhetoric and concentrate on affordability and delivery.
