Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made as to why those responsible for fire safety within the building industry did not carry out the tests that their Expert Advisory Panel commissioned from the Building Research Establishment following the Grenfell Tower fire on the performance of three different types of aluminium composite material cladding combined with different types of insulation material.

We cannot comment on tests that have been carried out independently to the current Building Research Establishment testing programme commissioned by the Expert Panel. The Industry has acknowledged that it needs to help co-ordinate the construction industry’s response to the challenges of implementing recommendations from the Expert Advisory Panel and Government. An Industry Response Group has been established to take this forward.
