ATISN 15963 – Cladding Consequential
Thank you for your request, which I received on 14.01.2022. You asked for:
1. A total amount of money Welsh Government has received from the UK Government via the Barnett formula as consequential funding, specifically for cladding remediation and building safety work following the tragedy at Grenfell tower.
2. The total amount of money from this consequential funding received which was spent on building safety work, including a breakdown of that expenditure.
The information you requested is enclosed.
If you are dissatisfied with the Welsh Government’s handling of your request, you can ask for an internal review within 40 working days of the date of this response. Requests for an internal review should be addressed to the Welsh Government’s Freedom of Information Officer at:
Information Rights Unit,
or Email: Freedom.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember to quote the ATISN reference number above.
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
Information Commissioner’s Office,
However, please note that the Commissioner will not normally investigate a complaint until it has been through our own internal review process.
1. The total amount of funding Welsh Government received from the UK Government via the Barnett Formula for cladding remediation and building safety work following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower was £58.873m in capital and £1.177m in revenue.
2. The total amount of this funding spent on building safety is £0.00. We are unable to provide a breakdown of costs as this was spent because of Welsh Governments emergency response to COVID-19.
