No survivors of the fire have been declared intentionally homeless and none will be if they do not accept an offer of temporary accommodation.

As the Secretary of State said on 3 July, we are committed to ensuring that families have a choice, and their wishes and needs are fully taken into account. This statement can be found at http://hansard.parliament.uk/commons/2017-07-03/debates/AC706A82-B504-4E3B-9797-85F6B2F20295/GrenfellTower
