More fire safety regulatory failures revealed

During the last quarter, Steve Reed MP has accused the government of being culpable for the tragedy at Grenfell Tower because they failed to act on the recommendations of the Coroner following the death of six people at Lakanal House in 2009. This may have been because of a government ruling that required departments to find savings of £2 from deregulation for every additional £1 cost arising from new regulations - a rule that will not apply to fire safety legislation from now on. The government has also belatedly published studies from 2015, highlighting a number of risk factors that were to play a part in the rapid spread of the fire at Grenfell Tower in June 2017.
