Volume 464: debated on Monday 8 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what capital projects there are in the Environment Agency's forward programme to alleviate flooding along the River Loddon in Berkshire. (153846)

The Environment Agency's Capital Programme includes the development of a flood risk management strategy for the River Loddon catchment. This is due to start in 2008 or 2009.

The decision to progress any specific options identified in the strategy will depend on their relative priority, when compared to other projects nationally, and the availability of funding.
