Sarah Jones responds to data on re-cladding high rise buildings

Sarah Jones MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Housing, commenting on new data showing the progress on re-cladding high rise buildings, said:

“Yet again we are faced with the reality of this Government’s reckless approach to fire safety in tower blocks.

“Almost two years on from the Grenfell tragedy, more than 8 out of 10 blocks with deadly Grenfell-style cladding are still draped in it. The news today that families of Grenfell victims must wait until 2021 for justice simply adds to the feeling that focus has slipped from this crucial issue.”
