Before becoming an MP, James Murray was the Deputy Mayor for Housing at City Hall, where he oversaw the Mayor’s £4.8 billion affordable homes programme. This included ‘Building Council Homes for Londoners’ – the first-ever City Hall initiative dedicated to building new council homes – which saw more council homes being built in London than in any time for the last 30 years.
