Carol Monaghan MP has issued an update on fire safety in her Glasgow North West constituency following the Grenfell Tower fire.
Monaghan wrote to Glasgow City Council and every local housing association regarding a number of fire safety issues, and has outlined the responses she has received on her website.
Following the Grenfell Tower fire, the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Communities established a Ministerial working group on building and fire safety to take any actions necessary as lessons are learned from the fire.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service will continue to carry out additional operational assurance visits to high-rise buildings in Scotland, and since the Grenfell Tower fire, over 200 visits have been carried out by the SFRS to residents in high-rise buildings.
“Since the horrific fire which took place at Grenfell Tower in London, I have had many constituents contact me with understandable concerns and questions about their own safety and that of their neighbours.
“I have subsequently contacted Glasgow City Council and every housing association which have properties within Glasgow North West, seeking clarification on a number of fire safety issues.
“I am grateful for the responses I have received, and am pleased to provide a brief outline of what I have been told on my website. I hope that this reassures my constituents, and residents across the city. ”
