Poll finds support for Livingstone's housing plans
Ken Livingstone is the London mayoral candidate who offers most to the housing sector, according to an online poll.
A survey conducted on the Inside Housing website last week found 45 per cent of readers think the Labour candidate would do the most for housing, followed by Conservative candidate Boris Johnson, on 26 per cent.
Independent candidate Siobhan Benita was in third place, on 14 per cent, followed by Green Party candidate Jenny Jones on 10 per cent, and Liberal Democrat Brian Paddick on 5 per cent. There were 219 responses.
Mr Livingstone has promised to reintroduce a target that 50 per cent of new homes should be affordable, if he is elected, and has also pledged to reclassify affordable homes as those let at no more than 50 per cent of market rate.
Mr Johnson has said he will deliver 55,000 affordable homes by 2015. He has also indicated he would increase pressure on pension funds to invest in social and affordable housing.
The vote takes place tomorrow (3 May), alongside local elections in England, Scotland and Wales. See our election page for full coverage.
