Grenfell Tower report
Hamilton’s Blameless charity will hold a celebration day in memory of one of their workers.
Angela Bordon, of Carluke, died following a road crash near Longford on July 4.
A fun day will be held on Saturday, September 23, at Hamilton Accies’ stadium, from noon. Angela Crawley, MP for Lanark and Hamilton East, has welcomed the UK Government inquiry into the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
Delivering a response to the government’s urgent statement on Grenfell Tower last week, Ms Crawley said she believes the inquiry must seek justice for the survivors, victims and families of the tragedy.
The response covered the need for reform of social housing policy in England to make sure future housing provisions are of a higher quality, as well as the need for increased counselling services for those affected.
Ms Crawley also highlighted the moves from the Scottish Government, which include a review of the current building standards and fire safety regulatory framework, a consultation on fire and smoke alarms in Scottish homes, and a targeted fire safety campaign for residents of high-rise buildings.
She said: “I welcome the UK Government’s inquiry into the Grenfell disaster, but I am concerned that without a wider focus into work that needs to be done in English social housing provision, it will fail to answer the more fundamental questions of basic standards of living.”
