To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what recent assessment he has made of the adequacy of the level of funding available for cladding remediation through the Building Safety Fund.

The additional £3.5 billion of funding announced on 10 February, on top of £1.6 billion of funding Government is already providing, means that leaseholders and residents in eligible buildings can be reassured that unsafe cladding on their blocks will be replaced.

Not all high-rise buildings with unsafe non-ACM cladding are using Government funding to fund remediation works. Many works will be funded by those responsible for the original work, through warranties or by building owners/landlords who are able to pay for the remediation without passing on costs to leaseholders.
