Make it Law that buildings of 5 or more floors must have sprinkler systems fitted.
This petition had 330 supporters
After the horrendous destruction and loss of life in the recent Grenfell Tower fire. It is shocking that a building that was home to more than 600 people, not only had only a single means of egress but that this building of 24 floors, had no fire suppression system. We the signatories of this petition demand that this government, during this Parliament, introduce legislation that requires any building of more than five stories or that has 50 residents, be fitted with automated sprinkler or fire suppression systems. Cost must not be an excuse for failure to comply. If a landlord is happy to take the profit from renting out a property then they must be compelled to safeguard their tenants. The events of the morning of the 14th of June 2017 should never have happened and must never be repeated, Our government has duty to make this happen and not protect the guilty because they are "business men".
