Boris Johnson – 2020 Comments on Tackling Flooding

The text of the comments made by Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, on 14 July 2020.

Last winter I saw for myself the misery and upheaval that flooding can bring to lives and livelihoods and I said we would do more to help people.

This long-term plan will help push back the flood waters and protect hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses and livelihoods.

Our record investment will also stimulate economic growth across the UK as we build back better.
