So the Govt announce that Sir Ken Knight will chair an:
“independent expert advisory panel” to advise on new fire safety measures.
It has been pointed out that Knight advised the Government against retrofitting sprinklers to high rise residential buildings in his report on the Lakanal House fire in Camberwell, in which six people died.
He wrote: “It is not considered as practical or economically viable to make a requirement for the retrospective fitting of fire suppression systems to all current high-rise residential buildings.”
Scrapbook has also found that Knight was the author of a 2013 report which advocated £200 million worth of cuts to the fire service."https://politicalscrapbook.net/2017/06/ ... -by-200m/#
