In a letter to senior coroner Joanne Kearsley, in response to her ‘prevention of future deaths’ report following the inquest into Awaab’s death, housing secretary Michael Gove said the government will launch a “rapid review” of existing guidance on the health impacts of damp and mould in homes.
This will be followed by new consolidated guidance tailored to the housing sector.
Mr Gove also pledged to table an amendment to the Social Housing Regulation Bill to include ‘Awaab’s Law’, a legal change called for by campaigners that would provide more protection to residents in affected homes.
