We are considering what further information it may be appropriate to release.</p><p>Data on total numbers of public residential and public and private non-residential high-rise buildings are not held centrally.</p><p>The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has been working with local authorities to collect data on additional private sector buildings with similar combinations of Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding and insulation to those which have failed large-scale system tests, but which have not been tested by Building Research Establishment (BRE). Local authorities have assessed over 6,000 high rise private sector residential buildings using a combination of information from local fire and rescue services, building plans, ACM tests undertaken elsewhere, knowledge of similar buildings where BRE tests have confirmed ACM, and building inspections. These figures could change over the coming months as further clarity is sought.</p>
