The Ministry of Justice could outline its plans to tackle whiplash ‘within the next 10 days’, a senior Medco source has told Post.
"The consultation is more imminent than we've all been thinking," said the source.
"The ante has been upped. The consultation is close; it'll come before Christmas, and before Christmas could well mean within the next 10 days."
The MoJ would not say specifically when the plans would be coming, only that they would be announced shortly. "The number and costs of whiplash claims remains too high, increasing premiums for ordinary motorists," an MoJ spokesman told Post.
"We remain committed to tackling the issue, and will set out our plans shortly."
