MSP Gil Paterson has expressed his heartfelt sympathy for the entire community of Grenfell Tower on behalf of the people of Clydebank, Milngavie and Bearsden.
His words follow a Scottish Government order to investigate high rises across Scotland.
A gigantic blaze gutted the London tower block earlier in the week killing 30, with 76 still missing.
The terrifying scene has prompted authorities nationwide to review safety measures and building appraisals.
In Scotland, Kevin Stewart MSP, cabinet secretary for housing, has asked both East and West Dunbartonshire councils to carry out the following:
Mr Paterson said: “The world has been shocked by the terrifying scenes at Grenfell Tower in London – the fact that there were residents, children, caught inside as the blaze swept through. It is truly bloodcurdling.
“I understand Craig Edward of the residents’ association at the Dalmuir high rises was quick to call for a safety review of the flats – and I welcome his swift action.
“I am pleased that the Scottish Government has ordered this to ensure this happens for all of the flats in councils across not just East and West Dunbartonshire but the whole of Scotland.
“Although housing standards are much more superior to that of England and Wales, we need to ensure that they are robust and there are no hazards that are hidden from view. I’m pleased the government has taken the action to investigate this.”
