To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to his oral statement of 4 September 2019 entitled, Spending Round 2019, to what programmes will the £24 million additional funding for the Building Safety Programme to support the new building safety regime be allocated.
The Spending Round confirmed that the Government will provide £24m of additional funding for the Building Safety Programme in 2020/21 to help prevent a tragedy like Grenfell happening again. The Government has announced that £10m of this funding will be available to support the Protection Board who will provide expert, tailored building checks and inspections, if necessary, on all high-risk residential buildings in England by 2021. The remaining funding will be used to support the new building safety regime.
