Moran writes to Government to save Abingdon flood scheme

Layla Moran, Lib Dem MP for Oxford West and Abingdon, has written to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs today to request an urgent meeting in order to secure adequate funding for flood alleviation in Abingdon.

Writing to Thérèse Coffey MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Environment, Layla highlighted the “clear disparity” between flood spending in Oxford and Abingdon. Whilst the recently-scrapped Abingdon Flood Alleviation Scheme was projected to cost £9.7 million, a far more substantial £150 million is being spent on Oxford’s defences, according to recent projections.

The letter follows Coffey’s response to a Parliamentary Question tabled by Layla Moran regarding flooding prevention in Abingdon. In her response, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State wrote that ‘[f]unding is allocated consistently across the country’, despite the apparent inconsistency in Oxfordshire.

Government “must do more” in call for flood funding - Layla Moran

Oxford West and Abingdon MP Layla Moran has called for more action from the Government on flooding. This comes in light of a Parliamentary Question revealing that since 2015 only £1.2 million has been spent on flooding prevention in Abingdon.

 Layla recently called a public meeting on the Abingdon Flood Alleviation Scheme, which was promised and then scrapped by the Environment Agency due to spiralling costs of almost £9.7 million. She has said that the current spending on flooding is “not good enough” and more must be done to make up for the “disappointment” cancelling the scheme brought to residents.

The Government defended its record by saying the Environment Agency has spent £1.2 million on some flood risk reduction in Abingdon since April 2015. This is compared to the £150 million being spent on reducing flooding risks in Oxford.

Richmond Park: Listen to Sarah Olney's acceptance speech

Speaking at the count following her shock victory in the Richmond Park by-election, newly elected MP Sarah Olney said: 

"Let me start by thanking the other candidates for a hard-fought campaign – and to Zac Goldsmith in particular, I wish you well and assure you that I will continue your fight against the expansion of Heathrow.
 
"I also would like to thank the returning officer, the staff that have worked so hard today and yesterday and of course the police. I want to thank my amazing campaign team led by James Lillis and the thousands of volunteers who have taken time to support me over the course of the campaign. I want to thank my family and friends for the wonderful support they’ve given me – particularly my husband Ben and our children. I want to thank our leader Tim Farron, and all the other party members who could not have been more supportive. And I'd like to thank the Greens, More United, the Women's Equality Party and all the other people beyond the Lib Dems who have supported me in this campaign.
 
"A year and a half ago, I wasn’t involved in politics. I wasn’t a member of a political party. I’d never been involved in a political campaign. I’d never thought about being a politician. But I knew I was a Liberal – I believed in openness, tolerance, compassion, working with our neighbours at home and around the world – and when I saw what happened at the General Election and I felt I had to get involved.
 
"I think a lot of people in this community had the same feeling this summer. Richmond Park is full of people like me who felt that something was going wrong. That the politics of anger and division were on the rise. That the liberal, tolerant values we took for granted were under threat. We were seeing the UKIP vision for Britain in the ascendancy – intolerant, backward-looking, divisive; just as we see it in America and across Europe.
 
"Well today we have said no. We will defend the Britain we love. We will stand up for the open, tolerant, united Britain that we believe in. The people of Richmond Park and North Kingston have sent a shockwave through this Conservative Brexit Government. And our message is clear: we do not want a ‘hard Brexit’; we do not want to be pulled out of the Single Market; and we will not let intolerance, division and fear win."


Amazing by-election victory in Richmond Park

Building on the success of our campaign in Witney, where Liz Leffman moved from fourth place to second place on a 19% swing in the vote to the Liberal Democrats, we achieved an even more impressive 22% swing to win Richmond Park in a surprise by-election upset.
