To ask the Scottish Government what information it has regarding how many private high-rise blocks in each local authority area have combustible cladding.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 28 September 2017

The Ministerial Working Group on Building and Fire Safety sought information from all 32 local authorities on the use of Aluminium Composite Cladding (ACM) on private high rise domestic buildings. No ACM was identified in 31 local authorities.

Glasgow City Council identified 57 buildings with some ACM. The extent of coverage or exact details of the type of ACM identified is being scrutinised further by Glasgow City Council.
