Grenfell Tower Inquiry - Mayoral updates

May 2020 report - updated on 01 June

The fifth progress report on the implementation of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry recommendations has been published. The Inquiry’s Phase One report made 46 recommendations directed at the London Fire Brigade, other fire and rescue services, the emergency services, Government and owners and managers of residential buildings.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan is committed to ensuring the Inquiry’s recommendations for the Fire Brigade are implemented, and to hold to account those responsible for putting the remaining recommendations into practice.

New London Fire Commissioner, Andy Roe, who was appointed by the Mayor, is leading the much-needed transformation of the Brigade and is committed to delivering on the recommendations of the Inquiry report.

The Mayor oversees the London Fire Brigade, which is part of the Greater London Authority Group, and he has undertaken to ensure that the recommendations directed at the Brigade are implemented. There are 14 recommendations directed solely at the Brigade and today’s progress report shows that actions are already underway for all of these.

The content and format of future reports will be developed in consultation with the Grenfell community, trade unions and the London Assembly, and published monthly on this website as part of a commitment to transparency and keeping the Grenfell community and Londoners updated.
