“I welcome the swift action by Communities Minister Carál Ni Chuilin in activating the emergency payment scheme for those impacted by flooding today.
“The scheme will allow homeowners impacted by flooding to quickly access a payment of £1,000.
“This payment will assist homeowners to make their homes habitable as quickly as possible.
