Khan puts rent controls at centre of London mayor re-election campaign

London mayor Sadiq Khan has launched his re-election campaign with an attack on Boris Johnson, who he challenged to hand over the power to introduce rent controls.

He criticised the Prime Minister’s record in City Hall, accusing him on Tuesday of failing on rough sleeping and housing, while scarring the capital’s skyline with skyscrapers.

The Labour incumbent was billing the May 7 election as a “referendum on rent controls”, which he said the Government had “blocked” his attempts to introduce in the capital.
