Rebecca Long Bailey MP Putting Salford and Eccles First
Myself, Salford Mayor Paul Dennett, Graham Stringer MP and Barbara Keeley have written to all social housing providers in Salford demanding urgent safety assessments and remediation following the shocking and tragic death of two year old Awaab Ishak in Rochdale.
It was found that little Awaab’s lungs had been exposed to damp and mould in the flat he lived with his family and that his death is directly linked to these poor living conditions.
We are clear: Awaab’s death should bring great anger to us all in this country, one of the richest economies in the world. No family should ever have to live in the conditions he and his family endured.
