ABI comments on the Scottish Government's announcement on flood protection


Commenting on the Scottish Government’s announcement on flood protection, Association of British Insurers (ABI) Head of Public Policy for Scotland, Alastair Ross, said: 

Alastair Ross, ABI“It’s good to see continued investment over the longer term to support local authorities in Scotland to take steps to protect communities. As climate change increases the risk of more frequent and severe flooding, further investment and a strategic approach to managing the risk are essential. The devastating flooding that caused disruption to hundreds of Scottish homes and businesses last winter is a reminder of how important the right protection is.”
