To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what funding he will provide for the victims of the flooding at Strabane.

In my reply of 3 December 1987, at columns 638–69, I indicated to the hon. Member the help provided at that time.

I would also encourage those who may be eligible for payments under the social security system to claim these entitlements immediately.
