To ask the Scottish Government whether it can confirm whether (a) all combustible cladding and insulation is banned for use above 11m in height on the buildings captured under the Building (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2022 and (b) combustible plastic foam insulation and combustible cladding such as high-pressure laminates and metal composite panels using combustible cores can no longer be used on the buildings captured in the scope of the ban.
