Flooding, wherever it occurs, can very distressing for local communities and the Government has every sympathy for those affected. To date, my Department has not been approached by any local authority impacted by recent flash flooding incidents. Where such localised incidents do occur, local authorities are expected to have in place well established contingency arrangements to respond to them and to support any recovery efforts.
