Min­is­ters ‘break­ing Gren­fell pledges’

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

Min­is­ters are re­fus­ing to meet prom­ises to fund fire safety im­prove­ments in re­sponse to the Gren­fell Tower blaze, lo­cal au­thor­i­ties have claimed.

Jane Urquhart, of Not­ting­ham city coun­cil, said works planned in her area were con­sid­ered “ad­di­tional rather than es­sen­tial” by the De­part­ment for Com­mu­ni­ties and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment. “We thought it was quite in­cred­i­ble [sprin­klers] were es­sen­tial for the Houses of Par­lia­ment but not for res­i­dents of high-rises,” she said.
