It has been announced by parliament that the House of Commons Transport Committee has agreed to hold a “short inquiry” into the cost of motor insurance in the UK
The Committee intends to focus on the reasons and consequences of recent increases in the cost of motor insurance and the impact on young people of the high costs of motor insurance.
They will also investigate the extent to which the cost of motor insurance is influenced by the prevalence of road accidents, insurance fraud, legal costs and the number of uninsured drivers.
The committee will also explore whether there are public policy implications of the rise in the cost of motor insurance and, if so, what steps the Government might take in response to them.
Short written submissions are invited by Monday 1 November.
The Committee intends to take oral evidence in November.
