Tabled 16 April 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House urges the Government to give greater recognition to the economic case for flood prevention in affected communities; registers its disappointment that failure to do so means that the Lake District communities of Windermere, Bowness and Backbarrow have not received the necessary flood prevention funding to protect them from future extreme weather events; notes that 80 per cent of the workforce in the Lake District work in tourism and that the industry is worth over £2 billion pounds to the Cumbria economy which has been negatively impacted by flooding in recent years; and believes that the Government would be failing in its duties if it does not protect these communities from the impact of flooding.
