Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 171624, tabled on 18 March 2021

The Government will fund the removal and placement of unsafe cladding on buildings over 18 metres. In buildings of 11-18 metres, with a lower risk to safety, leaseholders will gain new protection from the costs of cladding removal through a financing scheme so that leaseholders will never pay more than £50 a month. We will be publishing further details of the financing scheme.
