The Building Safety Bill is one part of the Government’s proposed response to the Grenfell tragedy.
The Government has already banned some materials and provided funds towards the cost of removing unsafe cladding. New blocks of flats over 11m high will have to have sprinkler systems.
If enacted, the Bill will play its part by creating systems and responsibilities designed to help make sure nothing like Grenfell can happen again. It will probably become law in 2021 and into effect by 2023-4.
