The government has arranged to test cladding in all relevant tower group blocks. Mr. Speaker, shortly before I came to the chamber, I was informed that a number of these tests have come back as combustible. The relevant local authorities and local fire services have been informed and as I speak, they are taking all possible steps to ensure buildings are safe and to inform affected residents.

Immediately after this statement, the Department for Communities in Local Government will contact any MPs whose constituents are affected and the community secretary will provide a further update later today. Mr. Speaker, we can test over 100 buildings a day and the results come within hours. I urge any landlord who owns a building of this kind to send samples for testing as soon as possible.
