The company that supplied the cladding used on London's Grenfell Tower - which was destroyed by fire earlier this month, killing 79 people - says it will stop global sales of plastic-filled aluminium panels. Around 200 firefighters and 20 fire trucks have been deployed to tackle the blaze as rescue workers try to evacuate the building in Lancaster West Estate in North Kensington.
She said those residents who could not move in with neighbours or friends would be given other lodgings until the owners of the building replaced the facade, a process that could be completed in a few weeks.
The Welsh Government said last Friday that it was urging social landlords to have samples of cladding tested.
"Right now, we are at a position where 95 buildings in 32 local authority areas have now failed the tests and that remains a 100 percent failure rate", May's spokesman told reporters.
British Prime Minister Theresa May said Tuesday there must be a "major national investigation" into the use of potentially flammable cladding fitted to high-rise towers across the country, as police formally identified a 5-year-old boy as one of youngest victims of London's Grenfell Tower fire tragedy.
The building's cladding fueled the flames as they rapidly ascended and engulfed most of the 24-story building.
The number of displaced households now in emergency accommodation following the fire has risen to 386, the Grenfell Response Team said.
"But now we have witnessed a catastrophic failure, on a scale many thought impossible in 21st-century Britain".
Meanwhile, Sky News has uncovered research that questions the European safety certification of widely used insulation panels containing the same PIR plastic used behind the cladding at Grenfell Tower.
In the Commons on Monday, Javid said: "My department is working with the Government Property Unit to oversee checks on wider public sector buildings".
Her comments on Tuesday came after tests showed that all samples of building materials submitted so far have failed fire safety tests.
Sir Ken Knight, who wrote a report on the 2009 Lakanal House fire, in which six people died, stated: "It is not considered practical or economically viable to make a requirement for the retrospective fitting of fire suppression systems to all current high-rise residential buildings".
