Written commitment from the council on immediate rehousing of all the victims of Grenfell Tower fire, within the borough!
Complicated issue this one. Some residents may not want to be rehoused in the immediate area. The tower is going to be there for a long time and people may easily feel retraumatised by being in it's vicinity. Also, we're ony a few days in. Rehousing isn't a simple action and very much still in the temporary accomodation stage. Rushing into immediate rehousing can easily cause as many problems as it is attempting to resolve.
Immediate release of funds to cover costs of welfare and all losses suffered by the victims.
This is a bit of a meaningless request. Funds have already been immediately released for things like temporary accommodation and other welfare related needs. We know this and can see it happening. Losses are a whole other issue and without a permanent home for them, where would victims be putting their replacement stuff? This and a whole load of other issues need to be resolved as they come up. Hopefully RBKC, the insurers, underwriters, Central Government and everyone else involved will make a concerted effort to get through the necessary processed as efficiently and effectively as possible and advocate for the victims. However, again, this is one of those things that necessarily takes time.
Commission investigation into the recent £10m refurbishment project of the same tower, and bring those who failed to install adequate health and safety measures and equipment at the building.
Theresa May has already committed to a full public enquiry. Whether this takes the form of an Inquest or an Enquiry remains to be seen but this appears to have been taken out of the hands of RBKC.
Release full list of victims of the tragedy so families can bereave their dead.
Are you fucking kidding me. We have a protocol in place that families are contacted to notify them of the deaths before the names are released. We do that for a number or reasons, not least of all so that families don't find out because a horde of journalists are on the front door step and ringing them out of the blue. Also, there is no full list. RBKC honestly won't have a clue at this time of everyone who is and isn't dead. There's no way you can condone giving out bad information to potential grieving relatives.
Commission investigation into all other similar buildings in the borough to identify fire, health and safety risks and put in place immediate control measures.
Definitely should do this and also work with as may Borough's as possible.
