Amend the Queen's Speech Legislative Programme to include a new Fire Regulations Bill.

This petition had 207 supporters

It is now beyond doubt that dangerous building practices and insufficient fire protection contributed to the  loss of life and to the trauma that is rippling out from Grenfell Tower. It is emerging that fire risks were clearly known and recommendations were ignored- which increases the shock and distress we all feel.

It is almost too awful to contemplate- but we also need reassurance about other buildings that have modern cladding like hospitals, schools, and offices. 

Our parliament can act now to prevent further fear, distress and loss of life by speedily improving fire regulations including the rigour of building regulation and fire inspections.

A full inquiry will need time to be completed and we cannot wait that long. The first interim step is to regulate urgently as recommended by the Parliamentary Cross Party Committee

That no mention was made of a new fire regulation bill in the Queens Speech is yet another failure but one that with cross party support can be remedied .

Please support this petition as one very small step towards honouring those who died and supporting the healing and recovery of everyone affected.

Every signature on this petition represents a person who holds those affected by Grenfell Tower in their thoughts.
