Members of the House of Lords contributed to the second reading - the main debate on key principles - of the Flood and Water Management Bill on 24 February
The wide-ranging discussion covered issues including: flood risk management and dealing with floods when they occur; the UK floods of summer 2007 and floods in Cumbria before Christmas 2009; powers for the Environment Agency, local authorities and internal drainage boards to carry out flood works for nature conservation or cultural heritage; sewer flooding; and managing water supply to the consumer.
Committee stage of the Bill - line by line examination - is yet to be scheduled.
