Sarah Jones comments on Government voting against protections for leaseholders and implementing Grenfell recommendations

Sarah Jones MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Policing and Fire, commenting on the Government voting against protections for leaseholders and putting recommendations from Phase One Grenfell Tower Inquiry into law, said:

“This was an opportunity for the Government to do the right thing, instead they have broken their promise to protect leaseholders and implement recommendations from the Phase One Grenfell Inquiry. They have continued in their failure to act and put the British public’s safety first.

“It is shameful that they have voted against implementing vital fire safety measures called for by the Grenfell Inquiry, and it is an insult to people across the country that this Government voted down protections for leaseholders from fire safety costs that they did not cause.”
