Households must be protected from flooding

11th August 2014

Responding to shadow Environment Secretary Maria Eagle’s speech today (Monday 11 August 2014), Friends of the Earth Climate Campaigner Guy Shrubsole said:

“It’s great to see Labour toughening their position on climate change and flood risk – Labour’s right that households need to be protected from flooding caused by climate change, but they, along with all parties, must definitively commit to meeting the huge shortfall in funding for flood defences.”
