Grenfell Tower fire: Public invited to consultation event to discuss inquiry's terms of reference

It takes place on Tuesday (July 25) evening at Phoenix Academy School Hall, and comes as the consultation deadline was pushed back to August 4

Members of the community in North Kensington can tell the chairman of the Grenfell Tower public inquiry what they think it should cover at a meeting on Tuesday (July 25) evening.

The consultation on the terms of reference of the inquiry will take place at Phoenix Academy School Hall in Shepherd’s Bush, near White City, between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.

A similar consultation event was previously held at the same location on Thursday (July 20).

It comes after the inquiry consultation deadline was extended from July 28 to August 4.

The inquiry is headed by retired judge Sir Martin Moore-Bick, who has come under fire after suggesting his investigation may not be broad enough to satisfy all survivors .

He has since backtracked, but that has not stopped members of the community and local politicians calling for him to step down .

The meeting will be recorded.
