Did the Mayor of London just say what I think he said?

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan joins calls for the government to make all property ownership in London transparent.

In particular, he urges the government to speed up plans for a new public register of the beneficial ownership of foreign companies that own UK property.

Roughly 44% of all the UK properties owned by overseas registered companies are located in London, according to recent research from the Land Registry.

Khan believes that in order to help prevent offences such as tax evasion and theft, the ownership of UK property should be more transparent.
