I know how children's lives can be blighted by overcrowded conditions, how their sleep is poor and interrupted, how in some boroughs there is no room in many homes to sit round a table to eat together or study, how poor housing has affected the health of many people - and how young people are turned out of their overcrowded homes into the street for the evening.
Without exception teachers in inner London have said to me that housing matters. Experts in public health have told me that if we are to address deprivation and inequality in London we have to tackle this issue.
The Mayor's Missed Housing Targets
The Mayor has planned to deliver fewer homes than needed to meet existing demand for social housing. He is late in delivering those that he's promised. As a campaigner across London I will not let the Mayor's missed targets pass unnoticed.
We must work together to keep up the pressure on the present Mayor to deliver and campaign for a Mayor who really believes in delivering housing in London for the future.
