Mr. Harvey

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what assistance he will give to the relevant authorities and agencies in Devon to secure EU funding towards sea defence projects in the county. [149514]

Mr. Morley

There are limited opportunities for EU funding towards sea defence projects. Relevant authorities and agencies are aware of these opportunities and can apply for funds. Of course the Government provide substantial funding for sea defences.
