MP for Worthing West protecting the trapped

The MP for West Worthing, Sir Peter Bottomley is sticking up for the hundreds of thousands of people stuck with unsafe cladding in their flats. 

Sir Peter Bottomley says not doing anything is bankrupting the innocent people and trapping families. 

It comes as the Grenfell Towers went up in flames due to a malfunctioning fridge-freezer on the fourth floor and spread rapidly due to the buildings cladding. 

This led to the death of 72 people and yet people in the UK are still living with unsafe cladding in their homes. 

A national task force must be established to “get a grip on the deepening cladding crisis”, according to Labour.

The party’s leader Sir Keir Starmer made the call ahead of a parliamentary debate on Monday about protecting tenants and leaseholders from unsafe cladding.

Labour will push for a vote on the issue in demanding the Government urgently establishes the extent of dangerous cladding and prioritises buildings according to risk.
