FOI Request - Flooding

Request 101001363966

Please note for clarity. The questions in this FOI request I sent last night all refer to last winter's floods (ie - Storms Desmond, Eva etc), not previous floods or the current flooding. I have amended the questions here to make them clearer.

Further clarification: Refer to the Scottish Government Grant Schemes [where English/Welsh legislation is cited in request]
