We continue to work closely with the Association of British Insurers (ABI) to ensure Flood Re is delivered as per the Memorandum of Understanding. DEFRA officials have regular meetings with the insurance industry on delivery of Flood Re and the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Mr Paterson, also meets regularly with senior members of the ABI.

The necessary flood insurance clauses have been successfully added to the Water Bill and are soon to be debated in the House of Lords.
