To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, with reference to his comments in York on 16 February 2020, when he plans to hold a flood summit for the whole of Yorkshire.
The Government recognises the impact that flooding has had on individuals and local communities. As floods Minister, I have continued to engage with a range of flood affected Members across Yorkshire since the November 2019 flooding.
The hon. Member will be aware that at the adjournment debate of 30 September I confirmed that I will be meeting with flood affected Members on 8 October with a focus on South Yorkshire following the letter from the hon. Member for Barnsley Central.
I will continue to discuss flood matters with colleagues from Yorkshire and across the country more widely, going forward.
