Autumn Statement 2014 – £2.3bn for flood defences

Print This Post

5 December 2014


Announced in the budget this week was the welcome news of an increase to the flood budget for 2014/2015. For the thousands of homes affected by flood this year this will certainly be a step in the right direction….

A £2.3bn investment is being implemented over the next six years to protect some of the country’s most at-risk locations. Flood defences were battered in last winter’s storms and the Treasury is aiming for 96.4% of the most important defences to be restored and enhanced by April 2015.

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
