Harriett Baldwin calls for Government action on flood insurance arrangements


9th May 2013

Harriett Baldwin calls for a statement from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs about flood insurance arrangements when the current set of principles for the provision of flood insurance expires next month.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con): Further to the point raised by the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) about the statement of principles for flood insurance, the current set of principles expires next month, so could we have a statement from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs as soon as possible about the principles that will be renewed? This matters to flood-prone constituencies such as mine.

Mr Lansley: I, along with Members across the House and the Government, share my hon. Friend’s sense of urgency about ensuring that the flood insurance arrangements are in place in the long term. That was exactly the point made by the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson). I reiterate that we took an important step forward yesterday in setting out in the Queen’s Speech our intention to introduce legislation on the water industry, which I hope not least will give a spur to the Association of British Insurers, together with the Government, to finalise the arrangements.
