Online petition re Business Flood Insurance

Bluefin have forwarded a link.  It is to an online petition to try to persuade the government to change the FloodRe scheme in order to include, amongst others, business premises.   FloodRe is the scheme being introduced to guarantee private householders flood insurnace but presently it excludes businesses. 

From what Bluefin tell us, perhaps the only chance of us and others getting flood insurance cover going forward is if that scheme is changed by the government to included businesses.

This is the petition: "Help flood victims get insurance-amend FloodRe and keep statement of principles"

Currently there are only 618 signatures - it needs 10,000 before the government will respond.
