Housing and building safety are devolved matters and the progress of remediation in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland is a matter for the devolved administrations.

Ministers from all governments met to discuss building safety and wider issues of mutual interest on 24 May as part of the first meeting of the Inter-Ministerial Group for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities chaired by the Secretary of State and agreed to work together.

The Department has a close-working relationship with the devolved administrations on building safety. Officials meet with representatives of all three devolved administrations regularly to discuss building safety.
