Thank you for contacting us on 20 May 2019.  As you have sent us two

Systems, we have combined the two requests into one request.
 
The combined request is:

request some further information in relation to the Large Panel Systems
'expert' group and their meetings. 
1) How many individuals make up the Large Panel Systems group/panel?

2) How many meetings have this group held to date?
2a) Please disclose the dates of previously held meetings, if possible.

3) Can you confirm whether any Large Panel System tower block residents
have, to date, been invited to any of these meetings?

On 11th August 2017, 18th August 2017 and 5th September 2017 MHCLG sent
correspondence to local authorities with Large Panel System tower blocks.
Can you confirm:

4) How many local authorities have carried out new structural assessments
on their Large Panel System blocks since receiving this correspondence?

5) How many Large Panel System tower blocks have MHCLG received structural
assessment reports for?
