The Government has told Salford City Council that it can't access the £400 million (US$525,82 million) public fund to help with the cost of replacing dangerous cladding on the nine Pendleton blocks because it's part of a PFI.

It has also been stated by the Government it will not allow the Council to loan Pendleton Together Operating Limited money from its £25 million (US$32,86 million) fund set aside for the cladding. The Government has already stated that it will not support private companies to replace cladding.

The Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, and Deputy Mayor, John Merry, declared discontent with the Government's response.
