‘Too little, too late’ isn’t even the half of it – Jon Trickett responds to the Conservatives’ flooding press release

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to the Conservatives’ flooding press release, said:

“‘Too little, too late’ isn’t even the half of it.

“You can’t trust Boris Johnson to look out for the North or the Midlands or protect our communities from flooding.

“But Labour will provide an extra £5.6 billion in flood defence funding, to level up flood defences over 10 years.

“Every home ruined and every business destroyed demands we act now.”

Notes to editors

Jeremy Corbyn announced today that an incoming Labour government will level up flood defences over 10 years with an extra £5.6 billion in flood defence funding – the figure that expert projections say is necessary given increased flood risk due to climate change.
