To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how much funding to date his Department has made available to each local authority area affected by flood damage from Storms Desmond, Eva and Frank; and how much of that funding was allocated from (a) the Communities and Business Recovery scheme, (b) the Bellwin scheme and (c) other funding sources.

My Department has paid out £57,237,780 to help local communities recover from Storms Desmond and Eva.

A breakdown of this sum will be provided to the Library of the House shortly.

We have also paid out £8.6 million predominantly match-funding to flood relief charities and community foundations.

Government has paid out over £240 million to help repair infrastructure damaged as a result of Storms Desmond and Eva.
