Queen's Speech — Programme for Government — Affordable and Safe Housing for All — 18 May 2021 at 18:49
The majority of MPs voted against the Government setting a deadline of June 2022 to make all homes safe.
MPs were considering the motion:
- That an Humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, as follows:
- Most Gracious Sovereign,
- We, Your Majesty’s most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled, beg leave to offer our humble thanks to Your Majesty for the Gracious Speech which Your Majesty has addressed to both Houses of Parliament.
The amendment rejected by a majority of MPs in this vote was:
- at the end of the Question to add:
- “but respectfully regret that the Gracious Speech fails to prevent the potentially ruinous costs of remediation works to make buildings safe being passed on to leaseholders and tenants; and
- call on the Government to set a deadline of June 2022 to make all homes safe.”
While the amendment was not specific it may have arisen in connection with reference to cladding related fire safety improvements which had recently been considered in Parliament.
