Liberal Democrat Leader, Sutton Council

“Having witnessed the tragedy of a fire in our borough last year, I understand the heartbreak and despair unsafe homes can cause. It is a national scandal that three years after the horror of Grenfell, so many people are still living in buildings that are not safe. We cannot expect leaseholders and tenants to foot the bill – it is not their fault that their homes were built without proper regard for safety. We need action before any more lives are lost.”
