The Government’s independent public inquiry into the fire at Grenfell Tower will examine the circumstances leading up to and surrounding the fire at Grenfell Tower on 14 June 2017. It will establish the facts and will make recommendations as to the action needed to prevent a similar tragedy happening again.

The Chair of the Inquiry, Sir Martin Moore-Bick, will soon start to gather evidence. That will include:

  • considering reports by the police, the fire brigade, safety experts and others
  • obtaining all relevant documents from whatever sources
  • contacting anyone who may have relevant information to give and who may be called as a witness

Anyone who thinks they have relevant documents or information should make sure they are retained and made available to the Inquiry.

Those with an interest are invited to help shape the work of the public Inquiry into the fire. Anyone can submit written views online or in writing. The consultation document is available to download here.

All suggestions must be made to the Inquiry team by 5 pm on 14 July 2017.

Suggestions should be sent to or by post to:

Grenfell Inquiry Team
Royal Courts of Justice

The Inquiry will produce a preliminary report as soon as possible, which is expected to provide answers to the most urgent questions affecting the safety of tower blocks.
