Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has accused Labour of ‘outrageous politicking’, after it was suggested cuts to the fire service may have been partly responsible for the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
In a statement on Facebook, Mr. Johnson said:
‘There has sadly been some political game playing about the terrible fire in London. I find it unbelievable that Labour are suggesting that this tragedy was somehow caused by fire service cuts.’
‘As for the record, fires in London went down 50 per cent in my mayoralty’.
‘Sadiq Khan conducted his own review of the London fire safety plan. If he felt that the provision in Kensington was deficient, he had ample budget to change it’
‘Any attack on emergency services performance is outrageous politicking by Labour’.
