§ Mr. Liddell-Grainger
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many(a) homes and (b) farm holdings have been unable to obtain insurance policies against flood damage in the last year for which statistics are available; and if she will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Morley
Firm statistics will not be available from the Association of British Insurers (ABI) until later this year.
Initial indications from the ABI are that insurers are maintaining cover for homeowners in high flood risk areas in all but a handful of cases.
The ABI are not aware of any instances where renewal has been refused on farm holdings. Farm buildings in general do not tend to have flood insurance due to the nature of their construction and lack of foundations.
