To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to Answer of 29 May 2018 to Question 145539 on buildings: fire prevention, what plans he has to increase the testing of high-rise buildings with potentially dangerous cladding other than aluminium composite material cladding.

There are no plans to carry out any building specific testing but we have commissioned further research on the fire performance of external wall systems, which we expect to publish later this year. The advice note referred to in my earlier answer to Question UIN 145539 on 29 May 2018 sets out how building owners can assess the safety of other cladding systems for themselves, with appropriate expert advice.
