MP Stephen Metcalfe asks question on cladding

THE MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock Stephen Metcalfe, rose on the floor of the House of Commons to ask question on cladding.

Mr Metcalfe said: “Will the Minister update the House on his discussions with developers about replacing unsafe cladding? What process is in place to resolve disagreements between residents and developers when a dispute arises about the level of remediation needed, as has happened at Morello Quarter in Basildon?

Housing Minister Lee Rowley replied: “My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is working to bring forward the developer contract; it has been discussed and debated for several months and we hope to have progress on it shortly.

“We are very clear that building owners ultimately have the responsibility to remediate these properties and make sure that leaseholders can continue to live their lives as they should be able to”.
