Politics Grenfell

A petition calling on the Prime Minister to take action to build public trust in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry has topped 100,000 signatures.

The petition, which urges Theresa May to appoint additional members with decision-making powers to the inquiry panel, passed the milestone required for it to be considered for debate by MPs in Parliament.

Organisers Adel Chaoui, Karim Mussilhy and Sandra Ruiz said in a joint statement: “This week the public have shown they’ve not forgotten about Grenfell.

“Just as they supported us in the immediate aftermath of the fire, when local and national government response was lacking, they’ve backed us again – and demanded the voices of the survivors and bereaved are heard.”
