NEC Statement - Response to the Grenfell Tower fire
The Liberal Party recognises that the tragic events of the Grenfell Tower fire have had a profound effect on the nation and have cast a dark shadow coming so soon after recent terrorist atrocities.

The tragedy has highlighted the contrast in living standards of the most affluent and those less fortunate, the pressures on social housing and the compelling issue of the way councils have cut back on building control and safety checks.

Wealth cannot continue to be hoarded by the most affluent, whilst the majority continue to feel the weight of austerity and the party calls for a modest redistribution of wealth to create an opportunity society.

The fallout from the Grenfell Tower fire has in a most painful public way shown the gulf that continues in the ownership of wealth in our society.  This disparity must be addressed, so that in the words of the Liberal Party constitution every citizen shall possess liberty, property and security.
