The Royal Institute of British Architects mentioned final month {that a} ban on flammable cladding was important, alongside a requirement for sprinklers to be fitted in new builds and a second escape route in high-rise flats.

He added: "Having listened carefully to concerns, the government will consult on banning the use of combustible materials in cladding systems on high-rise residential buildings".

Dame Judith, who told reporters she was "not an expert on Grenfell", called for tougher penalties for those who breach regulations, arguing that the cladding on the tower would not have got through her proposed system.

Speaking in the House of Commons just hours after the report's publication, Mr Brokenshire said: "We are consulting on significantly restricting or banning the use of desk-top studies to assess cladding systems".

"It really beggars belief that this report continues to give a green light to combustible materials on high rise blocks", he told MPs.

She advised BBC Radio 4's At this time programme {that a} "wholesale tradition change" and a "a lot stronger regulatory regime" was wanted after the tragic fireplace.

Shahin Sadafi, chair of the Grenfell United survivors group, told Today it was "very disappointing" that the report appears not to include an outright ban on flammable cladding.

Desktop studies are a method of assessment used if a developer wishes to follow plans similar to a setup which has already been fire-tested. She said the problem was that people were cutting corners and ignoring the regulations.

Lord Porter said the government should "act without delay" to introduce a temporary ban "until we have a regulatory and testing system which is fit for the 21st Century".

Dame Judith also found ignorance about the rules, a lack of clarity about who takes responsibility and inadequate oversight.
