Unsatisfactory reply from DCLG on UK application for EU flood relief funding.
The Government puts forward its case why they may not apply for EU financial help to help flooded areas. I am unsure as to whether this complexity is justified or not. If the funding is perverse then I the government have had previous occasion to amend EU rules around access to ensure that areas in the north for example do receive assistance intended for flooded areas. The cuts to local government funding has helped local authorities trying to deal with these issues.
