Hansard extract from June 1983 discussing @NHBC

"There seems to be some type of cover-up going on, as I was refused a copy of the National House Building Council's report on this system which was then obtained by Granada and shows all of the major defects in the system." "...a debate should be held to force the Government to prevent the continued use of this system, at least until the BRE survey of timber frame construction is published in full and to ensure that the report is not hushed up."

Pls share THREAD 👇 £1.6bn of taxpayer funding pledged to #ACM fund (£600m) and #BuildingSafety fund (£1bn) assuming this is all spent @hmtreasury could receive back 👇
