To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent reports she has received under her Department's high level targets for flood and coastal defence; and if she will make a statement.[120779]

We expect to receive a number of reports on High Level Targets from the Environment Agency in the coming weeks. Once received, I will place copies of these reports, which are designed to assist in delivery of the Government's policy aims and objectives for flood and coastal defence, in the House Libraries. These reports relate to:

  • Target 2—Flood warnings;
  • Target 3—Exercises and emergency plans;
  • Target 5—Flood defence inspections and assets at risk;
  • Target 10—Water Level Management Plans.
