We have been saying for years that the regulations need to be changed. But there has been no effort to improve anything because everyone believes there are less fires nowadays, so there was no will. Why would you increase the burden of regulation? There hasn't been a review for 11 years, and since then we have had significant fires both in Britain and abroad, which have been caused by new building materials and lack of risk assessments.feedback

My own thinking is there was the red tape challenge and they don't really want to put regulation on to businesses, adding a burden. It's one of those that if you bring in a new regulation, you have got to give three up to get it.feedback

Buildings like the one today over 30 metres, when they are new, would require fire suppression installed. But there are 4,000 older tower blocks in the UK that don't have sprinklers. There are people who would argue that it's too costly and there are other measures that could have been done but it's a fact that people don't die in sprinkler buildings.feedback
