The Welsh Government is seeing the fact that David Cameron visited Pembrokeshire could be a sign that there will after all be extra money for flood repairs in Wales.
Natural Resources Minister Alun Davies said:
I am encouraged to see the Prime Minister visiting Pembrokeshire today to see at first hand how we have successfully managed the impact of flooding in Wales. We have noted with interest his suggestion that there may be further financial support available to help with the clean-up. We assume that as the PM chose to make this announcement in Pembrokeshire, not England, there will be additional funding for Wales and our officials are following this up as a matter of urgency. We would want to make sure extra funding is used to best fit local circumstances.
I’m sure the PM will have been impressed by what sustained investment in flood defence can achieve. A recent report showed that in Wales our investment helped protect 99% of properties at risk of flooding.
