The hon. Gentleman makes an important point about building regulations and the guidance on them. It is already clear to us all that there will need to be changes, and that we need to look carefully at the causes and at the fact that so many buildings are failing the guidance test.

For the longer term, we will set out in due course how we intend to tackle the much wider review I think will be necessary.
