On Thursday 5 March, I wrote to over 500 building owners and managers across London setting out recommendations on building safety, informed by the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report and other best practice. The letter is available at https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/letter_and_recommendations_from_the_mayor_of_london.pdf.

However, I recognise the challenges faced by social sector landlords to carry out inspections and remediation works, and I will continue to urge the Government to support the sector adequately.
