The Grenfell Tower Inquiry will examine the circumstances leading up to and surrounding the fire at Grenfell Tower on 14 June 2017. It will establish the facts and will make recommendations as to the action needed to prevent a similar tragedy happening again.
The Inquiry is independent. It will be for the Chairman, Sir Martin Moore-Bick, to decide what documents should be produced and who should give evidence.
Residents of the Tower, others who live in the locality and those who have lost friends and family will be able to take part and the Government has said that funds will be made available, where appropriate, to cover the costs of their legal representation in the Inquiry.
The formal opening of the Inquiry took place on 14 September 2017 and the first procedural hearing on 10 and 11 December 2017. The Chairman is in the process of gathering and considering relevant evidence and hopes soon to be able to announce when the first evidential hearings with witnesses will take place.
Anyone who thinks they have relevant documents or information should make sure they are retained and made available to the Inquiry. You can contact the Inquiry through the addresses given on this website.
After the Inquiry has heard all of the relevant evidence, the Chairman will prepare a report for the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister has undertaken to publish the report in full and send it to Parliament.
