Britain's opposition Labour Party to force vote in parliament on pay cap

Weariness with austerity was a factor driving voters in this month's early general election away from the Conservatives and toward Labour, which to boost spending.

"It is plain to see that seven years of cuts to our emergency services has made us less safe", he said.

On Thursday, MPs will be asked to approve the policy agenda in a vote in the Commons, with many seeing the vote as more of a vote of confidence for May and her minority government.

Addressing the House of Commons during Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs), she said, "So far 100% of the samples that have come in have proved to be combustible". "I said to him, 'When are you going to be Prime Minister?'".

There is a link between cuts in local authority expenditure and the level of building control, inspections that have taken place and therefore the safety of the residents in those towers.

But it calls on the government to recruit more police officers and firefighters and to give the emergency services and other public sector workers a "fair pay rise".

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) said the Government should back Labour's amendment if it is "serious about addressing all aspects" of the Grenfell Tower fire.


"This disaster must be a wake-up call!"

May responded by outlining what she said was the longer-term political background to the cladding issue. "It did not start under the previous coalition government".

According to RMT, Corbyn said that a Labour government would repeal the Tories' rail privatisation legislation to pave the way for public ownership. The following year, rules were relaxed and the responsibility passed to councils. "But it is obviously something we have to consider not just for the army but right across the public sector as a whole", he said.

May replied by noting that the cladding of tower blocks began under the government of Tony Blair, adding parties should "come together" to find out what has gone wrong and how it can be prevented in future. Rather, she questioned why building inspectors had failed to detect the unsafe cladding at Grenfell Tower.

"Now with things like this year's Glastonbury, it's becoming ever more blatant", the MP for North West Leicestershire continued.

"We never knew for sure it would happen, but he was down to speak to the RMT".

"They have retreated on the winter fuel allowance, they've abandoned their attempts to scrap the triple-lock on pensions and now they appear to indicate that they are going to review the public sector pay cap, which obviously we were calling for during the election campaign".
