Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 18748, tabled on 21 February 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what funding he plans to make available to remove dangerous non-ACM cladding systems from buildings, to avoid the costs falling on leaseholders.

The Government has taken urgent action on building safety, including committing £600 million for remediating unsafe ACM cladding on high-rise buildings in the social and private sectors. Government intervention is wholly exceptional and based on the unparalleled fire risk ACM poses.

Residents’ safety remains this Government's utmost priority and there is no excuse for building owners not ensuring that residents are safe in their homes. Government will continue to support leaseholders and is reviewing options on how best to do so.
