The PMS confirmed that discussions with the insurance industry were ongoing.
When asked if the PM was concerned about the adequacy of flood defences, the PMS said a lot had been done to improve flood defences since 2007. He said the Government was investing considerable amounts over the next few years to ensure homes were protected properly. When challenged on funding for flood defences, the PMS re-emphasised that the Government was investing 2.17bn over four years on flood defences.
