Dave Raval, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesperson for Hackney South and Shoreditch has commented on the release of the first 15 fire risk assessments promised by the Mayor of Hackney and Hackney Council, following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire.
Commenting on the release Dave Raval said:
"The whole point of releasing these risk assessments is to be open and transparent with residents on the standard of fire safety in the buildings they live in.
"If the risk assessments have been completed then they should be released immediately, I cannot see any reason why there would be such a delay.
"The council are either hiding the fact that they have not made enough progress in getting these buildings checked as promised or are attempting to manage the fallout from the numerous issues that residents have been reporting to us and will be highlighted when the risk assessments are released in full.
