To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what plans his Department has to provide additional fire safety advice, further to the guidance issued by the National Fire Chiefs Council, to leaseholders and tenants living in high-rise properties that have not yet had remediation works undertaken to remove flammable cladding.

My Department has no plans to issue additional advice to that provided by the National Fire Chiefs Council. The latest version of "Guidance to support a temporary change to a simultaneous evacuation strategy in purpose-built blocks of flats" was published by the NFCC on 1 October and can be found on-line at www.nationalfirechiefs.org.uk/Simultaneous-evacuation-guidance.

General advice to leaseholders is available online at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/building-safety-programme-other-fire-safety-concerns.
