Parliament's Transport Select Committee is to extend its investigation into the rising cost of motor insurance, pickup truck leasing customers have been told.
The committee has said that it will extend its deadline for submitting written evidence to December 15th, giving individuals and organisations more time to submit comments in response to the oral and written evidence received to date.
Furthermore, it will undertake a further oral evidence session on the cost of motor insurance in the new year, following on from evidence given on November 9th.
During that session, the committee heard evidence from the British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA), which suggested an eight-point plan to reduce the spiralling cost of motor insurance.
Addressing the committee, BIBA head of corporate affairs Graeme Trudgill said: "We think the key priorities for the Government should be to introduce continuous insurance enforcement, implement changes to reduce the cost of bodily injury claims and importantly signpost customers to a source of help."
