London Fire Brigade (LFB) officers have had initial discussions with the Government regarding the issues that were announced in the Queen’s Speech to be included in the Fire Safety Bill and the Building Safety Bill. LFB provided significant contributions to inform the recommendations that came out of the Dame Judith Hackitt review and officers will be keen to help shape the Bills to enable those recommendations to be delivered. The London Fire Commissioner is meeting the Minister of State for Crime, Policing and the Fire Service in January, and these issues will be discussed at that meeting.
