Holding answer received on 21 March 2018

The first door was tested by the Metropolitan Police as part of their investigation. So far two additional doors have been tested by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. The Expert Panel has commissioned additional testing and inspections of fire doors from the same batch of doors installed at Grenfell and a sample of other doors as part of its investigation. The number of fire doors to be tested will be decided as the investigation proceeds.

I have committed to updating the House when further information is available, and no later than the end of April 2018.
