Sarah Jones – 2021 Comments on Fire Safety Repairs for Leaseholders

The comments made by Sarah Jones, the Shadow Minister for Policing and Fire, on 21 April 2021.

I am grateful to the Lords for voting to protect leaseholders from being forced to pay huge sums for fire safety repairs.

Each time that we vote on these amendments, the hopes of leaseholders across the country are raised, but we will not stop pushing the Government to act.

The vote provides the Government with yet another opportunity to do the right thing when the Bill returns to the Commons. If the Government decide not to, they will again betray leaseholders up and down the country.
