James Brokenshire, Shadow Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, made a statement on 17 May 2018 in the House of Commons on the Government's response to the independent review of building regulations and fire safety.
The statement follows the publication of the final report of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, led by Dame Judith Hackitt launched after the Grenfell Tower fire.
The Secretary of State told the House "Dame Judith’s review and the significant changes that will flow from it are important first steps, helping us to ensure that when we say, “Never again”, we mean it".
Responding on behalf of the Opposition, Shadow Housing Secretary John Healey said, "while I agree that he can endorse some of the recommendations, he must reject others that fall short and he must act where recommendations are missing".
