The Building Safety Regulator will receive the funding it needs to deliver its functions and my Department is working with the Health and Safety Executive to determine set-up and running costs. We intend to give the regulator the ability to recover some costs from those it regulates, as recommended by Dame Judith Hackitt’s independent review.
