Motion text

That this House notes with concern the large number of people who, four years after the Grenfell Tower fire, are still living in blocks with unsafe cladding and other building safety defects; is aware that that situation is causing great concern and distress to leaseholders who are currently unable to sell their homes; believes that leaseholders should not have to pay for the cost of replacing cladding, fixing defects, waking watches and higher insurance bills; recognises that leaseholders do not have the money to do that anyway; and calls on the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government to come forward with a comprehensive plan to identify all the buildings at risk, establish a body to fund the work needed to fix those buildings and then seek to recover payment from all those responsible for that scandal.
