Only 14 Grenfell families rehoused since catastrophe

Friday 20th October 2017

LABOUR accused the government yesterday of failing to keep its promises made in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower disaster because only 14 families have since been rehoused.

Shadow housing minister John Healey said that 152 households are still living in hotels four months on from the deadly fire that killed around 80 people.

He reminded Communities Secretary Sajid Javid that, days after the disaster, Prime Minister Theresa May had said: “I have fixed a deadline of three weeks for everybody affected to be found a home.”

Speaking in the Commons, Mr Javid admitted that only 14 families have been rehoused permanently, and that the number still needing a new home has risen to 202.

Fewer than one in 10 of the 4,000 high-rise blocks in the country have been tested by the government for fire safety and the flammability of exterior cladding similar to the material that fuelled the Grenfell blaze, Mr Healey said.

Mr Javid has “refused any government funds for essential fire safety work on other high-rise blocks,” he added.

The Communities Secretary revealed that out of 169 high-rise social housing towers in England that have Grenfell-style cladding, 161 are unlikely to meet current fire safety standards and work would be needed to make them safe.

Some 32 councils have expressed concern about funding for improvement works.

Meanwhile, it emerged yesterday that the Metropolitan Police has advised Kensington and Chelsea Council not to release its correspondence with the London Fire Brigade relating to the potential risks of the cladding on Grenfell and other buildings.

Making tower blocks safe for thousands of people in the wake of the Grenfell Tower inferno will cost £405 million in London, according to a report published by the Local Government Chronicle (LGC): here.
