Too many people, too few beds: overcrowding in London
14th November 2014

New figures reveal that despite nearly 400,000 children living in overcrowded homes, just eight per cent of affordable properties built in the last years have four bedrooms or more.

He discusses the matter with Andrew Boff , housing spokesman for the Conservatives.
