star this property answer text <p>As Leader of the House I take very seriously the responsibility incumbent on all Ministers to provide full, timely and comprehensible answers to Questions for Written Answer (QWAs).</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>In this instance I am informed by the Department that delays to five of these late responses were as a result of administrative errors. I have been advised that these issues have now been identified and resolved. I have been reassured that the Secretary of State takes this seriously and that he has made clear to officials that it is essential it does not happen again. The members concerned were contacted by the Department to apologise for the delay and these questions have now been answered.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>With regard to question number HL1066 from Lord Pearson of Rannoch, this remained unanswered by 6 September due to an error with IT systems maintained by the House which meant that it was not allocated to the correct department. The technical issue which was causing problems with transfers and amendments has now been resolved and the question has now been answered.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>My office will continue to work with all departments to ensure prompt and satisfactory answers to QWAs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In line with expert advice, the first step to identify other buildings of concern following the Grenfell Tower tragedy was initial screening tests on Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding samples. These generic tests are identifying which blocks have cladding which is not of limited combustibility, as defined in current Building Regulations guidance. The independent expert advisory panel recommended further large scale testing of cladding systems be undertaken according to the British Standard BS8414-1 and classified to BR135, the standard set out in current Building Regulations guidance. The large scale system tests provide more information about how cladding systems behave in a fire. The large scale tests are now complete and results can be found at:<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/latest-government-large-scale-fire-safety-test-results-published" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/latest-government-large-scale-fire-safety-test-results-published</a></p>
