The government will start drawing up legislation on whiplash reform this month, a finance minister said.
Jane Ellison, the Financial Secretary to the Treasury said the “compensation culture” was only a benefit to the dishonest consumer.

Speaking at the manifesto launch of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association, she added: “We all know that fraud means higher prices for honest customers. It serves nobody other than the dishonest consumer. The many honest customers and businesses are at a disadvantage.”
