As I said in my written statement on 16 January 2017, in the days that followed the flooding in December 2015 and early January 2016, the government very quickly identified that the immediate priority was to respond to the urgent needs of those affected and we have paid out almost £300 million.

All of the £300 million came from the government, and the government will continue to ensure that there is help available in the places that it is needed.
