North Yorkshire MP Anne McIntosh has said that spending on flood defences has not kept pace with rising risks from more frequent severe weather.
The Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, which is chaired by Ms McIntosh, said a "major commitment" to enhancing protection announced by George Osborne in last week's spending review was still up to £150 million a year less by 2020 than its own experts said was needed.
