This was a real battleground issue back in the 1990s when some Midlands building societies were guilty of dreadful miss-selling of home income plans and it took a landmark meeting of the All Party Group with the building societies and the Insurance Ombudsman (as it then was) to broker a solution to the dreadful problems faced by policyholders who had lost out. Out of that crisis came a concerted move by the market to clean up its act and Safe Home Income Plans (SHIP) is the organisation that the market supports today to help it raise standards and promote best practice. It is SHIP that the group will hear from tomorrow.
The meeting - open to anyone who is interested - takes place in Committee Room 17, House of Commons at 11.15am.
