Theresa May has announced government funding for the removal of risky cladding from some tower blocks in the wake of the Grenfell fire.
Mrs May had been criticised for her response to Grenfell tower fire, in Kensington, west London, which killed 71 people.
Theresa May confirmed the risky materials would be removed during Prime Minister's Questions earlier today.
"I can today confirm that the government will fully fund the removal and replacement of unsafe cladding, by councils and housing associations, estimated at £400 million (458 million euro, $539 million)", May told lawmakers at the House of Commons. Weeks after the fire, the government said survivors would be offered permanent furnished social housing within 12 months.
The PM said: 'As we approach the anniversary of the appalling tragedy that was the Grenfell Tower fire our thoughts are with the victims and survivors and all those affected by that tragedy'.

'When Grenfell survivors and anxious residents in other tower blocks should have seen action, they have had to suffer painfully slow progress and broken promises.
Work has already started on 104 buildings, and the number of eligible schemes will be kept under review, the spokeswoman said.
Theresa May made her announcement during prime minister's questions after being asked for an update on the work done by the government to ensure that tower blocks are safe.
He said he was "establishing at pace what further action can be done by the government or by the council to speed up this process".
The state's housing and public works minister, Mick de Brenni, has told the ABC that while it would cost millions to complete rectifications, the government could not put a price on safety.
