Campaign progress

The archaic insurance law leaving consumers vulnerable at their hour of need could finally be reformed as Scottish and English Law Commissions publish a report recommending new legislation with widespread support.

The Trading Standards Institute (TSI) has been campaigning for a change in consumer insurance law since May 2009 when the issues around it where highlighted at the organisation’s All Party Parliamentary Group meeting.

David Sanders, TSI’s chairman, said:  'The report from the Law Commissions is clear and fair – which is why the proposed changes received widespread support during consultation from not only consumer groups but also major insurers.  It is good to see ABI also joining the fold and we trust they are now committed to the change.'
