To ask His Majesty's Government why they are proposing that UK housebuilders pay for remedial work to buildings other than those they built, following the Grenfell fire.

Developers must make a fair contribution to the overall costs of making buildings safe, reflecting the wider benefit they derive from a well-functioning market, and the substantial funding and support the government has and continues to provide to the housing market.

The Government has already committed £5.1 billion to fund remediation of unsafe cladding. The Building Safety Levy is a key element of ensuring that the burden of paying for fixing historic building safety defects does not fall on leaseholders and does not further burden taxpayers.
