A video grab from footage broadcast by the UK Parliament's Parliamentary Recording Unit (PRU) shows Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May as she speaks in the House of Commons in London on June 21, 2017, following the State Opening Of Parliament. The support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough.
Last week the Scottish Government asked all local authorities and other Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) to provide tower block stock information to assist a ministerial review of Scottish regulations in the wake of the fatal blaze in West London.
Firefighters tried to save as many as they could.
The weekly Tuesday meeting of the government cabinet discussed the continued response to the fire and aid for survivors.
Mrs May made her remarks following the Queen's Speech, which included plans for a civil disaster taskforce.
LFB first responder Rob Petty shared photos from the visit on Facebook, and simply added, "Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Fire Station for a cup of tea and a cuddle".
May stressed that victims would receive payments as they attempted to rebuild their lives and pledged to rehouse those who had lost their homes within three weeks.
Since the tragedy, the Government announced it was triggering a £5 million emergency aid fund to help those affected.
While the affordable housing won't be as luxurious as those for private sale, the news release states that "each home will be fully furnished and completed to a high specification".
In an email sent to Labour MP David Lammy, it was suggested that survivors of the fire are being offered housing as far away as Preston and those who refuse are "making themselves voluntarily homeless".
