The Association of British Insurers is calling for sustained, long-term flood defence spending that keeps pace with the threat of flooding.
At a flood summit today, Nick Starling, ABI director of general insurance is expected to say:
Insurers know the traumatic and devastating impact of flooding, through helping their customers recover after a flood.
Political commitment in the key areas of investment in flood defences, sensible planning decisions and working in partnership with the insurance industry will ensure that flood risk communities get the protection and reassurance they need
