Up to 12000 Queensland buildings may have flammable cladding

NAPIT Responds to the Hackitt Review 1

Dame Judith Hackitt's report, being published on Thursday morning, will criticise what she calls systematic flaws in how buildings are planned, built and managed which she believes are putting people's lives at risk.

In the United Kingdom, a review into the Grenfell Tower fire says radical changes are needed to fix what's been called the "broken" system of building regulations. "When we met Dame Judith, we looked her in the eye and we asked her - among other things - to ban risky cladding".

He added: "Having listened carefully to concerns, the government will consult on banning the use of combustible materials in cladding systems on high-rise residential buildings".

Mr Brokenshire revealed that, of the 210 households in need of a home, only 74 were in permanent accommodation.

This is particularly important for Wandsworth, as we have two tower blocks - Sudbury House and Castlemaine - where essential cladding removal works are already well under way. "People can't sleep at night people are scared at night".

One commentator tweeted: "Appalled by the decision to not ban cladding".

He said he was "establishing at pace what further action can be done by the government or by the council to speed up this process".

On Tuesday, he narrowed the window by declaring May 28 as the day Monmouth Park will launch sports betting in New Jersey . The Supreme ruled 6-3 Monday that the federal government can not stop states from setting up sports gambling operations.

She said: "I would hope that when they see the content of my report and when they read all of the changes that I want to make to this system to make it more robust, that they will recognise that it is about more than simply issuing a ban on certain materials. Ban flammable cladding", she said.

She also did not recommend a ban on so-called "desktop studies", assessments that can be used to approve cladding without physical fire safety tests taking place.

"I have tried to fix the system, irrespective of what the next problem might be, not just the problem with cladding", she said.

Lord Porter said the government should "act without delay" to introduce a temporary ban "until we have a regulatory and testing system which is fit for the 21st Century". The organisation promotes insulation containing a foam known as polyisocyanurate (PIR), blamed for fuelling the fire at Grenfell.

Executive director Adrian Dobson said: We and our members will have to work within whatever regulatory regime is proposed, if it's adopted by government, and obviously will continue to do so.

Her review is aimed at making sure similar events do not happen in the future.

The causes of the Grenfell Tower fire are the subject of an inquiry which is due to start public hearings next month.
