Here is the list of 13 issues which will be investigated by the inquiry into the Grenfell Tower disaster.
Officially opening the inquiry, its chairman Sir Martin Moore-Bick said the list “should be viewed more as a statement of current thinking” rather than a prescriptive list.
– It will examine whether the tower complied with relevant regulations and legislation.
– What assessments were made and who was responsible?
– Were any of the modifications inadequate, and where did failures occur?
– Why were they carried out, and who was responsible for any failures?
– What fire safety measures were in place and were they compliant with building regulations?
– Were inspections compliant with relevant standards?
– What was the legal relationship between the different persons and organisations who were responsible for fire safety at Grenfell Tower?
– What concerns, warnings and other statements were expressed about the fire safety of Grenfell Tower by its residents or any other person before, at the time of or after the recent renovations, and what was done in response?
– What was the advice, and was it reviewed regularly?
– To what extent did any failure to implement any recommendations relevant to fire risk cause or contribute to the manner and speed of the spread of the fire at Grenfell Tower, the extent of the damage and the number of casualties?
– What was the cause of the fire, how did it progress, and what contributed to it?
– What plans and strategies did the fire and rescue service have for dealing with a major fire in a high-rise residential building, and what actions were taken on the night of the blaze, including any “stay-put” policy?
– Was the response of all agencies involved adequate, and if not in what respects was it inadequate?
