HC Deb 12 June 1980 vol 986 cc299-300W
Mr. Aspinwall

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what arrangements were made to distribute money from the European Commission in the county of Avon, which was made available for equal distribution to those householders affected by flooding.

Mr. Fox

With the agreement of the Commission, its aid was apportioned among district councils, including those in the County of Avon, according to the estimated number of households affected in each area. District councils made their own arrangements to distribute the aid as rapidly as possible to each qualifying householder.
