Flood insurance: Government's incompetence and delay - Creagh

23 November 2012

Mary CreaghMary Creagh MP, Labour's Shadow Environment Secretary, said:

"The Government promised a deal on flood insurance by July 2012 but their incompetence and delay is costing homeowners money, as premiums and excesses rise.

"Ministers are leaving it to the eleventh hour and this creates a real risk that people will be left with homes they cannot insure, mortgage or sell."
