Proposals to defuse a scandal that has trapped tenants in unsafe and unsold homes come more than four years after the Grenfell Tower fire left 72 people dead.

Mr Gove It is expected to announce that landlords in buildings between 11m (36ft) and 18m (59ft) tall will no longer have to take out loans to cover repairs.

He will warn developers: “I’m heeding them. If you’re selling dangerous products like cladding or insulation wrong, if you cut corners to save cash as you grow, or Renovate your home, we’ll come help you.”
