In response to media coverage of the decision-making process around installing cladding on the Grenfell Tower,  A Kensington and Chelsea Council spokesperson said:

“We will not comment on partial evidence nor hold an inquiry by media. The council is working with the inquiry and the Metropolitan Police to get to the truth of the Grenfell tragedy. The council’s sole motivation is to ensure that the Grenfell tragedy cannot and will not ever be repeated.”
