Responding to Michael Gove's widely-publicised statement in Parliament on cladding, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Daisy Cooper MP said:
“The Conservative Government is still failing to understand the scale and urgency of the building safety crisis faced by many innocent leaseholders stuck in unsafe and unsellable homes.
"Innocent leaseholders have eye-watering bills sitting on their kitchen tables for non-cladding fire safety defects, not knowing whether they have to pay them or not
"They also have no idea what they can do if the shoddy companies that are responsible no longer exist, whether or how they’ll be protected from homelessness or bankruptcy, or when their living nightmare will end.
"This is a step in the right direction - but there’s a long long way to go.”
