Mark Williams MP gains Prime Minister’s Support over Insurance for Flood-hit Homes in Ceredigion

June 13, 2012 2:59 PM

Welsh Liberal Democrat MP Mark Williams has secured support from the Prime Minister over insurance relief for the hundreds of people across Ceredigion whose homes were hit by devastating floods.

Mr Williams put a question to David Cameron during Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday morning where he urged the Prime Minister to ensure that all insurance companies act with the same speed and efficiency already shown by emergency services since the floods hit over the weekend to help get all those affected back on their feet.

David Cameron agreed that he had been in touch with the Welsh Government First minister, Carwyn Jones and Welsh Secretary, Cheryl Gillan and assured Mr Williams that they will be working together over the issue of insurance companies.

Mr Williams said: "We saw the speed which the emergency services and so many members of the community acted with to ensure that no lives were lost in this devastating situation.

"We must now make sure that all insurance companies, and I stressed all to the Prime Minister, act with the same speed to ensure that we get these communities back on their feet again as soon as we can."

Mr Williams also thanked the Prime Minister for his message support to Ceredigion following the unprecedented floods which have hit properties and businesses and had devastating effects on infrastructure across Ceredigion and again praised the emergency services for their swift action.
