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.
