Cumbrian MP Tim Farron has slammed a "£40 million shortfall" in cash needed to help the county recover from the floods of December's storms.
Six months ago Storm Desmond left thousands of homes and businesses in his Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency underwater.
The leader of the Liberal Democrats says there is still plenty of work needed.
Although in many ways Cumbria is back to normal – the A591 is fixed and most businesses have now reopened – we must not forget about those still affected.
There are still many residents out of their homes, and many more who are affected by road and bridge closures. It is unjustifiable that the government has still not committed to providing all of the funding needed to repair the flood damage – across the county there is a £40million shortfall.
The government also failed to provide additional funds to support businesses affected by flooding after the initial pot ran out.
