Builders to pay £4bn to fix flammable cladding, Michael Cove pledges

Sky, 11 Jan 2022
Property developers and those who missold dangerous building products have been warned they will have to "pay to put things right" as the government announced fresh action to solve the cladding scandal.

Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, warned those responsible for the crisis that they are being "put on notice" as he pledged that leaseholders living in a development above 11 metres would no longer have to pay to fix safety problems.

The new proposals come more than four years after the Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017, in which 72 people were killed.
