COBRA meeting for Grenfell Tower disaster?

The request was partially successful.

Dear Prime Minister’s Office,

Was there a COBRA (Committee Briefing Room A) meeting for the Grenfell Tower Disaster?

I expect there would be, because COBRA was set up to co-ordinate in crisis situations and you would think that there would be a COBRA meeting considering there were over 50 people killed, dozens in hospital, over 500 people with their homes burnt down, others evacuated from around the building and concerns over the collapse of the building causing more damage and shutting tube lines in London.

So I would appreciate it if you could answer the above.

I would also like to know if the Grenfell COBRA meeting considered the long term implications. For example it would be sensible for the Tower block building should be re-built to the highest safety standards (to show what can be done with good design and safety) so that social housing is maintained and so that key workers like firemen and nurses can afford to live in central London. Not to do this, and to allow a private developer to buy this plot and develop luxury private high rise housing on it would be an abomination, and the government should warn Chelsea and Kensington Council that this would cause unrest.

The new block should allow previous residents to move back if they chose, which would re-establish the community and prevent the feeling in the City of social cleansing. A proper memorial garden and plaque would be at the entrance. The remaining flats should be offered to new fire fighters, new nurses, police, teachers, street cleaners and other key workers so that London can function and deal with future events (this is in everyone's interests). I would appreciate it if you could confirm that such matters were discussed in the COBRA meeting.

Yours faithfully,

james mclean
