To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what the results of the recent fire tests on non-ACM cladding demonstrated; how many blocks those tests found to be affected; and when those blocks will be made safe in the same way as blocks affected by ACM cladding.

We expect the final results of Non-Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) testing to be available by the Summer. The research findings will be published in due course. The findings will help determine, in consultation with the Independent Expert Advisory Panel, if any additional action is necessary over and above the extant Advice Note, which can be found here:
