§ 35. Mrs. Chalker
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has 637W yet reached a decision on the pound for pound support for local authority or privately donated funds to alleviate flood and storm damage distress.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
Pound for pound support is not considered appropriate. Grant support will be available for the improvement of coastal protection and sea defence; the proportion depends on the content of each scheme. The Government may also aid those inland authorities with considerable damage to not normally insurable property.
