Vocable (All English) - - On Parle D'eux… -

Lon­don Mayor Sadiq Khan is con­sid­er­ing in­tro­duc­ing rent con­trols across the cap­i­tal. In a let­ter to a Labour MP, he wrote that Lon­don needed to adopt a “strate­gic ap­proach to rent sta­bil­i­sa­tion and con­trol.” Although na­tional leg­is­la­tion cur­rently gov­erns pri­vate sec­tor rents, the mayor will be­gin to ad­vo­cate for mea­sures to tackle over­in­flated rents.
