Shameful that only 7 tower blocks with dangerous cladding have been replaced – Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to new data showing that only seven tower blocks with unsafe cladding have been replaced, said:

“Eight months after the Grenfell Tower fire, it is shameful that only seven tower blocks with dangerous cladding have been replaced.

“It’s simply not good enough for Ministers to sit on their hands while residents continue to live in unsafe homes.

“Ministers must now act to help fund essential fire safety work in tower blocks that they know are dangerous.”
