asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expected to receive the official communication from the EEC Commission about the aid that it intends to make available to meet costs arising out of the recent storm and flood damage in Eastern England; and if he will make a statement.

The Commission has provided £629,926 for disaster relief in England and Wales and £314,963 in Scotland. The Government are urgently considering how this assistance should be distributed and a statement will be made on this as soon as possible.
