Today, at Prime Minister’s Questions I raised the issue of St Francis Tower with the Prime Minister. I highlighted to him the condition of St Francis Tower, with shrink wrap being placed along the entirety of it leaving many in darkness. I also raised the issue of bars across resident’s windows preventing them from being properly opened and added that this could be the case for up to 12 months.
I understand the need for the work to take place but it must be balanced with the mental health and well-being of the residents. I am glad the Prime Minister shared my concerns and I will be providing him with further details to study. I also look forward to urgently meeting with the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to discuss how we can address this awful situation.
I am also meeting with both Block Management and Oander Ltd next Tuesday with an expectation that many of our actions from our last meeting have been carried out.
