The shortcomings of the Grenfell cladding fund were exposed by Paul Lewis, presenter of BBC R4 MoneyBox live on Saturday.
Riutu Saha, founder of UKCAG – the UK Cladding Action Group – and a leaseholder at Northpoint in Bromley, which has ACM cladding – told MoneyBox that the £200 million that government has put aside for cladding does not cover the huge costs of providing the waking watch.
Both leaseholders who were interviewed expressed their frustration at government, which has had plenty of time to understand this issue.
LKP has consistently argued: these buildings are worthless; the freehold needs handing over, removing the irrelevant third party speculator in the building’s income streams; the cladding needs sorting by government funding.
