Nine in 10 private blocks with Grenfell-style cladding still haven’t had it replaced – Sarah Jones

Sarah Jones MP, Shadow Housing Minister, commenting on statistics showing no private blocks with Grenfell-style cladding have been made safe since May, said:

“More than two years after Grenfell, nine in 10 private blocks with Grenfell-style cladding still haven’t had it replaced. The Government’s abject failure to take proper action means that not a single private block has been made safe since May.

“It beggars belief that the Government is still discovering buildings covered in this material. People have been living for years in death-traps with no additional safety measures. Ministers must now adopt Labour’s plan to force private block owners to act in order to make homes safe.”
