An interim report of the flood insurance working groups.



Insurance plays a key role in flood risk management. Defra Ministers hosted a meeting in September 2010 to discuss flooding and insurance.

This was in the context of the expiry, in 2013, of the current agreement between Government and insurers, known as the Statement of Principles.

Three working groups were formed to continue the dialogue after the meeting. This report gives an interim update on progress.
