28 February 2024

The Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (LUHC) Committee has published correspondence from Lee Rowley, Minister for Local Government and Building Safety, Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, following a series of Committee questions relating to the Independent Review of the Construction Products Testing Regime.

Clive Betts, Chair of the Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (LUHC) Committee wrote to Lee Rowley (5 February) with questions on the Government’s implementation of the Review.

The Review was commissioned by the Government partly in response to the Grenfell Tower fire. The Review’s report was published 20 April 2023 - the Government is yet to provide its response.

The Committee correspondence followed recent Committee evidence sessions with the Minister Lee Rowley and the co-authors of the Review, Paul Morrell OBE, formerly the Government’s Chief Construction Adviser, and Anneliese Day KC.
