Further to your answer to Question No: 2020/0579, ‘ When do you expect MHCLG to publish information on buildings with forms of unsafe cladding other than ACM?’

Your answer being:

The Government has set a deadline of March 2020 for local authorities to return data on the external walls of all high-rise buildings. I am not aware of any plans of the Government’s to publish this information. will you lobby the Government to publish this data so residents will know what hazards they face?

I agree that the Government should urgently publish details of which external wall systems have failed testing. This is long overdue and the lack of action is putting residents at risk. However, as with buildings with unsafe aluminium composite materials cladding, I do not support publishing a list of affected blocks given the increased safety risk this would pose to residents.
