It is unacceptable that families who have been through the trauma of losing neighbours, friends and family members have had to wait so long for a new, permanent home. I provided funding for the purchase of homes for Grenfell survivors and I have written to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the Government to highlight the rehousing failures.
