'Government is failing Grenfell Tower fire survivors', says Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn

Corbyn said the pace at which survivors are being rehoused was a "disgrace"

Monday, December 11, 2017

The Labour Party was said the Government is “failing” the survivors of Grenfell Tower by leaving many without homes or faith in the ongoing public inquiry.

Jeremy Corbyn has demanded action after reports that escapees from over 100 apartments are facing Christmas in hotels.

Only 42 families who were previously living in the tower have moved into new homes since the blaze in June, a rate which was described as a “disgrace” by the Labour leader.

This week will mark the six-month anniversary of the blaze, which killed up to 71 people, and Corbyn released a statement to condemn the Government for its “failings.”

In a statement, he said the Tories were failing to learn lessons of the fir, were failing the survivors and failing to deliver the answers needed from the Government.

The remarks from the Labour leader come amid criticism of the inquiry into the tower fire, which a number of survivors have said they have no faith in.
