Labour calls for action on faulty appliances

Labour has written to Home Office Minister James Brokenshire MP, calling on the Government to act urgently on the number of fires caused by faulty appliances in high rise blocks.

Sarah Jones MP, Shadow Minister for Policing and Fire, wrote: “The slow progress in recalling them needs swift improvement – if quicker action is not taken, the Government risks letting down all those who campaigned for change after Grenfell…People must be reassured they are not living with the possibility of faulty appliances that could risk setting their homes on fire.”

The letter cited figures from consumer charity Electrical Safety First which indicate that the number of electrical fires from faulty appliances has risen in recent years.
