'Make public fire risk reports’ says Cllr Ainslie

Confidence in council home safety will only be restored if all fire risk safety assessments are published, said Green Cllr Scott Ainslie in a motion to Lambeth Council in July.

Labour-led Lambeth has refused to publish fire risk reports online, following the Grenfell Fire tragedy.

In March, it was revealed that disciplinary action was underway against Lambeth housing officers accused of giving misleading information about fire and electrical safety risk assessments in Lambeth.
More than 30,000 Lambeth council tenants need to know corners have not been cut with their safety” said Cllr Ainslie.
