Coun­cils claim White­hall are re­fus­ing to meet prom­ises to fund fire safety im­prove­ments in re­sponse to the Gren­fell Tower fire.

Lo­cal au­thor­i­ties say fund­ing mea­sures such as the in­stal­la­tion of sprin­klers from their bud­gets would mean less money to in­vest in new coun­cil homes or re­pairs to ex­ist­ing stock.

Yes­ter­day, the Depart­ment for Com­mu­ni­ties and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment in­sisted they had not de­clined any re­quests for fund­ing but had asked coun­cils for more de­tails about their plans.
