Homes for All supports Early Day motion on Crane safety

East London Advertiser reports on the vigil at the first anniversary of the crane collapse killing June Harvey in Bow.

EDM (Early Day Motion)286 was tabled on 06 July 2021. It says:

That this House notes with deepest regret that 8 July 2021 marks the tragic death of June Harvey after a tower crane fell on her house in Bow in 2020; further notes with sadness other fatalities as a result of crane collapses; pays tribute to the construction safety campaign, largely led by bereaved relatives and trade unions, raising concerns about the under-regulation of health and safety in the construction industry amidst a reduction in inspections and reductions in the Health and Safety Executive’s resources, particularly since 2010; and calls on the Government to ensure that legislation and guidance regulating cranes are robust and that the HSE has the resources for vigorous enforcement.

It has been signed by 13 MPs so far. You are urged to contact your MP to ask them to sign it.
