Another "wet" answer from the government.
If you build on a flood plain you will get flooded. That is why they are called "Flood Plains". So the government still want people to build houses in locations that will get flooded.
Certain aspects of the natural environment cannot be resisted and we should not try."The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister wish to see a reduction in the amount of inappropriate new development in flood risk areas."
Of course they are not answering the question.The government's plans on exclusions
are not joined up as usual. Certain children cause massive problems. Making mainstream schools deal with them merely brings everyone else down. They also are still into making schools readmit children expelled by the head.The government's schizophrenia over air travel
is demonstrated by this answer. The chances of building a second runway at BHX are negligable, but it is still causing blight on the citizens of Sheldon.
