Bellwin Scheme

Volume 488: debated on Monday 23 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much was claimed under the Bellwin scheme following the summer floods of 2007; and how much has been paid out to local authorities. (257331)

Local authorities claimed a total of £24,074,196 under the Bellwin scheme for the 2007 summer floods. £5,278,917 was excluded as it was not eligible expenditure under the scheme. A total of £18,795,279 was therefore paid out under the Bellwin scheme by the Department.
