As announced in the Queen’s speech on 19 December 2019, the Government is committed to bringing forward legislation on fire and structural safety that delivers meaningful and lasting change. The Fire Safety Bill will be introduced to Parliament shortly by the Home Office. The Building Safety Bill will follow and be published later this year. Resident safety is paramount, and we owe it to them to get this right.
