It is good that the Inquiry is progressing again.
It is sobering that a report, apparently written in a rush, 5 years before the disaster and 2 years before the design and build contractor was appointed, is now subject to in-depth review.
Whatever one writes in a report, one HAS to consider where it may ultimately end up and who might use it.

It's also interesting to note that the proposals exceed the limitations on travel distances required in the common areas of blocks of flats, as noted in Building Regulations Approved Document B1 (Fire Safety).
HMRC should insist that any worker who has been furloughed be employed for at least 6 months (maybe 12) after the end of the furlough provision.
Otherwise the government have simply been ripped off by the employers obtaining money ostensibly to protect jobs only to make those same people redundant at the end of the furlough arrangements.
Considering that the major cost of running an architectural practice is staffing cost, surely the statement "... revenue for building design could be down by nearly a quarter (24 per cent) in 2020." will equate to an equivalent job loss percentage? So around 20% not 2%?
A very magnanimous gesture. Jeffrey - an engineer.
