Ms Dent Coad, below, has accused Tory-led Kensington and Chelsea council of failures that led to the blaze, claiming “poor-quality materials and construction standards have played a part in this hideous and unforgivable event”.
But as a councillor she was on Kensington and Chelsea’s housing scrutiny committee, which oversees “community safety issues”, until May 2014.
A 2014/15 report, in which she is named, says the committee scrutinised work on Grenfell Tower.
She was on the board of Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation when the tower’s refurbishment was discussed.
Kensington’s ex-Tory MP, Victoria Borwick, said Ms Dent Coad shared “collective responsibility” for the work.
