To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the extent of the current delays in the production of written reports by the Building Research Establishment following BS8414 tests on the performance of external fire cladding systems; and what are the implications of these delays for fire safety in the UK.

The Government is not aware of any delays in the production of written reports by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) or any other commercial laboratories. Officials from the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government are in regular contact with building owners and the wider construction industry to identify anything that might prevent remediation of buildings with potentially unsafe ACM cladding systems.
