Dumfries and Galloway council have called on the Scottish government to help them finance local flood defences.
Last week the Prime Minister said 'money was no object' in helping those in the South of England affected by the recent severe flooding.
But Councillor Colin Smyth has asked whether David Cameron's comments would mean Scottish communities hit by flooding would also receive help.
"The message we're sending the the Scottish Government is if you're receiving more money through the Barnett formula as a result of what's being invested in England, we want to see that money being invested in areas that are affected by flooding such as Dumfries and Galloway because the reality is that businesses and homeowners in this area can't keep up with the sort of devastation that they've seen as a result of the floods."
