ITV News published this video item, entitled “Gove admits not enough change since Grenfell as he’s confronted with mould-infested flat | ITV News” – below is their description.
Housing Secretary Michael Gove has admitted to ITV News that his government has not been quick enough to introduce change to housing regulations following the Grenfell Tower Fire in 2017.
Mr Gove made the comments as he visited a family on the same Rochdale housing estate where Awaab Ishak died in December 2020.
Awaab died from a respiratory condition caused by mould in the one-bedroom housing association flat where he lived with his parents.
The housing secretary told ITV News Investigations Correspondent Daniel Hewitt that while “lessons were learned” after Grenfell the “process of implementing changes hasn’t been either as quick or as complete as it should be”.ITV News YouTube Channel
