Description

David Lammy has accused the Government of failing to provide adequate support for Grenfell Tower victims and argued the dearth of provision shares parallels with Victorian England. The Labour MP for Tottenham said charities were being forced to plug the gap created by “insufficient and incompetent” local government support in the wake of the horrific fire which is now believed to have killed at least 58 people. The council of Kensington and Chelsea is said to be giving survivors just £10 when they arrive in hotels and failing to channel donations into proper on-the-ground help.
