The Prime Minister has received a letter from the judge leading the Grenfell Tower fire public inquiry with his recommendations over issues the probe should examine.
The letter from Sir Martin Moore-Bick was sent to Theresa May late on Thursday (August 10) afternoon outlining his views following weeks of discussion with survivors, an inquiry source said.
It is expected the Prime Minister will set out the terms of reference for the process in the coming weeks.
Debate has raged around the scope of the inquiry since it was announced in June, with those affected by the tragedy demanding it scrutinise the systemic issues underlying the fire .
Retired Court of Appeal judge Sir Martin endured repeated calls for his resignation amid concerns over his suitability for the role.
He stoked anger on his first day in the job by indicating the investigation would be “pretty well limited” to examining the cause of the fire, how it spread and how to prevent future incidents.
He later vowed to consider a “broad range of evidence” which could include why residents’ warnings about fire safety were allegedly ignored by authorities.
Survivors, bereaved families and other involved parties spent weeks making their case about what questions the probe should answer, with the inquiry receiving more than 400 submissions during the consultation period .
