London mayor candidate wants rent controls

Labour's candidate for London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has housing top of his agenda.

Stating his views in a piece he did in the New Statesman in June, Khan identified his support for rent controls in the capital, saying

"And while we build the homes we need, I will do everything I can to protect Londoners renting in the private sector. I'll introduce a new “London Living Rent” model of intermediate housing - linking rents to a third of income. I'll create a London-wide social letting agency, building on the brilliant work of London Councils and I'll push the Government to give the mayor the power to freeze rents in the private sector."
