Flooding is the biggest threat the UK faces from climate change.
Incompetent Government ministers have sat on their hands for the past two years and failed to get an agreement with the insurance industry, which means 200,000 homeowners will face difficulties getting flood insurance when Labour's deal with the insurance industry runs out in June.
Any new deal on flood insurance would require primary legislation so ministers need to end the brinkmanship and get a deal to give certainty to homeowners and businesses at risk of flooding.
