"Tens of thousands of homes are to be built in London’s suburbs under a blueprint to tackle the housing crisis blighting the capital, the Standard can reveal.
"... The Government's long-awaited housing white paper, published today, highlighted how housing density in London, relative to its population, was far below levels in Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, and lower than in Berlin and Milan.
