Fire safety sprinklers must wait for a review

"Government promises to help local authorities with essential fire safety works lie in shatters after it refused to pay for sprinklers in tower blocks."

"Communities secretary Sajid Javid has refused to commit funding to retro-fit sprinklers to tower blocks, saying that the government will instead await the outcome of a review of fire safety in housing before deciding whether sprinklers should be required by law and paid for by the Government."

"But according to Labour MP Dan Carden now is not the time for another review - `we need commitments` to ensure a tragedy such as Grenfell doesn`t repeat itself."
