Boris Johnson statement on situation in Newham

A spokesman for Boris Johnson said: ‘Boris Johnson has made clear that while welfare reform is necessary, London's housing market means that transitional arrangements are required and he has already secured a raft of concessions from Government to help London, including extra time for existing claimants and a £100million fund to help families stay in their local area.

'This builds on his affordable housing record of building 52,000 affordable homes – the most of any mayoral period.

‘The most important thing the Mayor can do is reduce rents by increasing supply, which is why Boris is opening up 530 hectares of public land to build thousands of homes, and get people off benefits and into work, and that is why Boris is creating 200,000 jobs over the next four years.'
