Grenfell Report Debate – Fire Service criticised

The Prime Minister opened the debate on the Grenfell Tower report published today.  Stay with us to view the debate. A lot has emerged from the report.

The report of the first phase of the Grenfell Tower fire reveals how the fire began, spread and became a disaster. These are some of the key findings which will influence the deeper investigation of the inquiry’s second phase.  Also into how it could happen in the first place.

Boris Johnson said the government will fully accept the findings of a report on failings in the Grenfell Tower disaster.  He promised survivors and relatives the “the truth will out and justice will be done”.

Mr Johnson, who was mayor of London and in charge of its fire services until 2016, was criticised by Mr Corbyn for failures to act. Mr Corbyn said the government’s response had been “inadequate, uncaring and frankly insulting”.  This a sign that Labour could make housing a focus of its election campaign.

“Grenfell Tower would not have happened to wealthy Londoners,” he said. “It happened to poor and mainly migrant Londoners.”


Survivors and bereaved relatives of the Grenfell Tower fire have called for London Fire Brigade chief Dany Cotton to resign – after a highly critical report from the inquiry into the blaze.

The report said some of the 72 people who were killed could have been saved if the building was evacuated sooner.

London Fire Brigade chief Dany Cotton said she is not resigning and wants to stay in her position to take on board all the responsibility of the blame.
