HOUSE OF COMMONS WRITTEN PARLIAMENTARY QUESTION

For answer on: Tuesday 17 July 2001 Date answered: Tuesday 17 July 2001

DTLR Ref: 0565 01/02 Party: CON

Mr Peter Lilley (Hitchin & Harpenden)

3 To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions, if he will provide financial assistance to North Hertfordshire District Council under the Bellwin Scheme in respect of costs incurred following the severe flooding in the village of Kimpton on 24th and 25th February. [4973]

Mr Raynsford

I am satisfied that financial assistance under the Beliwin scheme is justified in the

case of North Hertfordshire District Council given the exceptional nature of flooding.

A scheme will, therefore be established under section 155 of the Local Government

and Housing Act 1989. Grant will be paid to cover 100 per cent of the eligible costs

above a threshold, which the Authority has incurred in dealing with the flooding.
