Jack Straw and Louise Ellman to meet All Party Insurance Group

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Insurance & Financial Services will be continuing the work it started during the autumn session looking at some of the many issues around the cost of motor insurance, referral fees, whiplash claims and fraud.

Two of the biggest Parliamentary influences in this debate have been the Transport Select Committee and former Cabinet minister Jack Straw's bid to ban referral fees. Next Tuesday the group will be meeting Mr Straw and the chair of the Transport Select Committee, Louise Ellman as it bids to bring together the different strands of this key debate.
