Tonight, Labour’s motion to protect people trapped in unsafe, unsellable flats and pursue those responsible for this cladding scandal passed 263-0.
The Tories couldn’t even be bothered to vote.
What a shameful way to treat struggling residents. In my speech, I shared the stories of some of the constituents who’ve contacted me – from the family suffering through lockdown in a tiny, overcrowded flat they can’t sell to the pensioner terrified he’ll be made homeless because the bill for remedial fire safety works would bankrupt him.
My constituents and many millions more across the country need the Government to step up now and end the cladding scandal – not turn their backs.
