FBU publishes Grenfell Inquiry submission

grenfell-tower-fireThe public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower disaster must look at the failures in the fire safety regime that led to the worst blaze in the UK since World War Two, the FBU has said.

The demand is part of the union’s submission, published today, to the inquiry which is currently consulting on its terms of reference.

The FBU says the inquiry should cover:

  • The reasons why a domestic fire should grow to such a devastating size
  • The capacity of fire and rescue services nationally to respond to fires of this scale
  • The defects, acts and omissions that resulted in Grenfell Tower being so vulnerable to fire
  • Matters that have impacted on the fire safety regime over recent years and have created the environment where the aforementioned defects, acts and omissions could arise.

The submission can be read here.
