I have today placed tables in the Library of the House showing for each London borough since 1997-98 the number of new house building completions and also the number of additional new build affordable dwellings.

Not all affordable housing is provided through new build completions, supply can also come from the acquisition and refurbishment of private sector homes. In 2008-09, for example, a total of 12,890 additional affordable homes were provided in London.
