EU will release 60 million euros to help Britain repair 2015-16 flood damage

Britain will get 60 million euros (51.3 million pounds) from the European Union for flood restoration and repair following the floods of last year, reported Reuters on 5.4.17

Britain had asked for EU support to rebuild infrastructure which suffered extensive flood damage as a result of the heavy rains in the winter of 2015-16. European Parliament lawmakers will approve the grants on Wednesday, clearing the way for the funds to be disbursed, parliament officials said.

Flood damage help to come despite Brexit

When one member state has a problem, others actively collaborate and help. The UK will benefit from EU solidarity despite Brexit and the triggering of Article 50“, said the lawmaker in charge of the dossier, Portuguese conservative José Manuel Fernandes.

Britain has just started the two-year process of quitting the EU, but it will remain a full member state until Brexit occurs, sharing benefits and costs of the membership. The settlement of Britain’s financial commitments to the EU is considered one of the most contentious issues in the negotiations.

The aid to the flood-stricken regions will come from the EU Solidarity Fund, which is used to help countries hit by natural disasters. It is the second time that Britain has received financial support from the Fund which was established in 2002 and has a financial reserve of more than 1 billion euros.
