Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how much was spent on flood protection measures in (a) rural areas and (b) urban areas in each year between 2001 and 2008 (i) in cash terms and (ii) as a percentage of total flood protection expenditure in each of those years. (207364)
