There are 56,000 people living in buildings with unsafe Grenfell-style cladding, new analysis has revealed.
Labour has warned that three years after the tragedy that claimed the lives of 72 people, three quarters of people living in buildings covered with deadly ACM cladding have still not had it removed.
It warns that the replacement of other types of dangerous cladding could take decades at the current rate.
The party is calling on Whitehall to take enforcement action against building owners who fail to make their buildings safe.
Thangam Debbonaire, shadow secretary of state for housing, said: ‘Ministers have missed their own deadline for cladding removal and must now take the enforcement action they promised to make buildings safe.
‘Grenfell-style cladding is just the tip of an iceberg. At the current pace it could take decades to end the cladding scandal. This vital work must speed up. It is a matter of life and death.’
