High Rise Flats: Fire Prevention

Question for Home Office

UIN HL569, tabled on 30 October 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government, following the report of the Public Inquiry into the fire at Grenfell Tower on 14 June 2017 Grenfell Tower Inquiry: Phase 1 Report, published on 30 October, when they plan to introduce new fire safety legislation.

The Government accepts, in principle, all the recommendations made of central Government in Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry’s Phase One report and will work at pace to take these forward. This may include bringing forward legislation ahead of the Bill on building safety standards announced in the Queen’s Speech if that would mean the Inquiry’s recommendations can be implemented sooner.

We are currently analysing responses to our Call for Evidence on the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and intend to publish a formal response after the General Election.
