Action on flooding

Villages in the Broads area experience regular problems with flooding. Norman Lamb and local County Councillor Dave Thomas are working hard to get action.

Dave Thomas comments: "A number of roads in Hickling have some drainage issues which I am pressing County Highways and the International Drainage board to work on. Sea Palling had some work completed on the drainage along Stalham Road recently and Horning has flooding outside the school that I am working with County Highways and other local councillors to address."

Norman Lamb has also taken up issues of flooding on roads and pavements in Catfield after local residents raised the issue with him on his 'village tour' of open air advice surgeries.

Cap on care costs

As Care Minister I secured a commitment to deliver reform of our unfair care funding system. The reforms would have made sure people didn't have to sell their house in their lifetime to pay for care, and that far more people would get some financial help towards their care. The Tories have now said the reforms will not be introduced next year as planned. Will you sign my petition to demand they honour their commitment?
