Responding to the ban on combustible cladding systems announced today, Lord Porter, Local Government Association Chairman, said:

“It is great that James Brokenshire has listened to our calls for a ban on the use of combustible materials on complex and high-rise buildings.

“An effective and total ban will provide clarity for building owners who need to know what they can use to replace dangerous cladding and insulation and immediately help keep buildings safer. This ban will help ensure that the tragedy at Grenfell Tower can never be allowed to happen again. It needs to be introduced as quickly as possible.”
