What was the total number of dwellings contained in the twenty buildings where London Fire Brigade conducted a deep-dive fire safety audit?

The number of dwellings (i.e. individual flats) was not specifically captured for the purpose of this program of audits. The engineered solutions which were the focus of the audits related to the protection of the common parts, as these are the areas to which the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies. For the same reason, this information is not automatically required by our fire safety inspection records. However, most of the residential flats were large, high rise and the total number was in the region of several hundred.
