Astonishing it has taken two years for Ministers to act on Grenfell-style cladding – Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to the announcement on funding for the replacement of flammable cladding on private high-rise blocks, said:

“It is welcome that the Government is finally giving some help to worried residents in private blocks with Grenfell-style cladding, but it is astonishing that it has taken Ministers almost two years to act.

“The Government must now back the further steps Labour has been calling for, toughen the sanctions to get this work done and set a deadline to make all blocks safe.”
