FLOOD defence funding was questioned in Parliament by Bury South MP Ivan Lewis.

He asked: "How much funding for flood defences has been allocated to each constituency in England and Wales since 2015?"

Parliamentary under-secretary Therese Coffey, said: "The Government is investing £2.6 billion between 2015 and 2021, delivering at least 1,500 new flood defence schemes and better protecting 300,000 homes. However, funding for defences is not allocated by constituency and there is no set quota."
