Therese Welcomes Bellwin Scheme Changes

Therese has today welcomed the announcement by the Government that the Bellwin Scheme, which reimburses local authoritiesfor dealing with emergencies has been extended.

The changes which will help in the aftermath of the recent flooding extend eligibility criteria so that local council's can claim up to 100% of the cost. The Government also announced that extra spending on flood defence schemes would get the go ahead.

Speaking in the House of Commons today, Therese said: "I really welcome the changes to the Bellwin Scheme that the Government has proposed, which will help Suffolk people, families and businesses."
