Fire Risk Assessment and Consultation History
Mr Lewis has replaced Mike Penning as Minister of State at the Home Office for police and fire and he will report to new home secretary Amber Rudd. This is the second time that Mr Lewis has taken over as fire minister having previous held the position in the Department for Communities and Local Government from 2012-2014. Penning has now assumed the role of minister of state for the armed forces, having only taken over as fire minister on 1 April.
A family from Surrey are homeless after a fire, started by their Indesit tumble dryer, destroyed their property just weeks after they had contacted the manufacturer. The family home was completely gutted by the blaze. The Garnhams were left only with the clothes they were wearing when they escaped the fire.
