I have written to all relevant building owners setting out my strong expectation that leaseholders should be protected from costs. We are not publishing details which could identify buildings because of the risk to public safety. On 9 May we announced a fund for the remediation of unsafe Aluminium Composite Material cladding on all high-rise (over 18 metres) residential private sector buildings in England. A number of owners and developers, including Taylor Wimpey, Legal and General, Mace Group, Lendlease, Barratt Developments and Aberdeen Standard Investments have agreed to maintain their commitments to fund remediation. I commend them for the responsible and moral position they have taken.
