The Building Safety Minister has held frequent meetings with the insurance industry since his appointment in March, at which representatives from the Association of British Insurers have been present. Meetings have been focussed on the pace of remediating high rise buildings, the affordability of buildings insurance for such buildings and solutions to those challenges.

Ministers have encouraged the insurance sector to propose options to improve PII availability for key fire safety work and we are working with the industry to develop potential solutions. We will continue to engage a wide range of stakeholders in consideration of these issues.
