S5W-11469: Alexander Stewart (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 22 September 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what reassurances it can give to people in the Mid Scotland and Fife parliamentary region regarding the presence of combustible cladding on private high rise flats in the region.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 3 October 2017

Scottish building regulations since 2005 require that any cladding on high rise domestic buildings must be of non-combustible material or be part of a system that has been rigorously tested. In addition all local authorities within the Mid Scotland and Fife parliamentary region have reported that the material used on the Grenfell Tower (Aluminium Composite Material) has not been used in cladding systems in local authority, Registered Social Landlord or private sector high rise domestic buildings.
