CIH apologises for inappropriate choice of speaker at Housing 2019 conference


A former executive director of the tenancy management organisation that was responsible for the management of Grenfell tower at the time of the fire had been included among the speakers at Housing 2019. She has now withdrawn.

"We apologise unreservedly for this speaker being included on the programme for Housing 2019. It was entirely inappropriate and should never have happened. In particular we apologise wholeheartedly to anyone affected by the tragic fire at Grenfell for the hurt and upset this will have caused. We are working with our external events company partners to put in place measures to ensure that nothing like this can ever happen again.”
