To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the take-up was for registration with the Environment Agency for flood warnings in each of the last five years; and whether flood warnings extend to business properties.
The following table shows the number of properties currently registered with Flood Warnings Direct (FWD). Prior to 2006 the Environment Agency operated an Automatic Voice Messaging (AVG) system which delivered pre-recorded warnings to those who registered with the service. The AVG system provided a phone number for registered properties and therefore did not distinguish between home and business.
The AVG system was administered independently by Environment Agency area offices and therefore no year on year data of registered membership for this service is held nationally.
