@claddingscanda1 Why?

Legacy concerns over security or arson risks
convenient FOI blocking strategy for an embattled @GOVUK

All of which is ridiculous when national enforcement registers are a) required by law to be in the public domain
b) list full details ImageImageImageImage
@claddingscanda1 @GOVUK Given the sensitivity of this subject matter here are some useful links signposted to allow more informed positions.

Here’s an informative article from @kentfirerescue on enforcement policy & key enforcement considerations.…
@claddingscanda1 @GOVUK @kentfirerescue All statutory enforcement agencies are bounded by legislation & a clear regulators code.

@sarahjolney1 @mhclg 1/3 Sadly waking watch relief fund should be called the fire alarm relief fund

I’d surmise @govuk had the £30mil in contingency, they know fine well @mhclg backed @lgahousing guidance repeatedly stressed communal fire alarms = false fire alarms (see heard and embedded posts)
@sarahjolney1 @mhclg @GOVUK @lgahousing 2/3 @mhclg have been very sly in down grading the standards in the building safety fund from new build combustible cladding ban to intended pre #grenfell standards

This reduces the number to blocks in scope for limited funding & demand on sector = quicker recovery

Is it safe?
@sarahjolney1 @mhclg @GOVUK @lgahousing 3/3 Why is @mhclg gifting @RICSnews £700k of public funds for #EWS1 which remains open to fraud

When Australian - Victoria came up with a more robust federal audit regime in Nov 2017

+ no ghastly wait on #Hackitt white elephant or new Legislation - when operation clean sweep

Yesterday I called on @BorisJohnson, key ministers & stakeholders to launch a #publicinquiry into UK #Hospital #FireSafety.

As the second wave of #covid19 picks up critical mass must address the plethora of fire safety defects & concerns.

Press DM for comment
We do appear to have a fire safety problem in UK hospitals

@ukhomeoffice stats indicates an alarming number of fires in high rise hospitals & in the thread woefully inadequate PFI new build quality to legacy issues.
When @NFCC_FireChiefs @labcuk both advise member enforcement agencies to take a soft touch to fire safety in mega #nightinggale field hospitals & significant departures from Health technical memorandum (HTM) Firecode alarm bells are ringing.
