Answered By: 
The Mayor

The number of premises that have temporarily moved to a simultaneous evacuation strategy has changed at regular intervals over the last two years as premises have been remediated and others have been added to the list as issues have arisen. The readily available data held by London Fire Brigade does not capture the dates at which buildings were added or removed from the list, so it is not possible to provide a yearly breakdown for these premises. However, the requested breakdown for the current list of premises is provided below:
