HC Deb 24 March 1971 vol 814 c136W
Mr. John Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, in the investigation into the collapse of the Vehicle and General Insurance Company Limited, he will inquire into the rôle played by the British Insurance Association and the Motor Insurers Bureau in the reinsurance of passengers and dependants.

Mr. Ridley

As my right hon. Friend informed my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester, South-West (Mr. Tom Boardman) on 10th March, he is discussing with the British Insurance Association means by which they can contribute towards giving greater confidence to the public who take out policies of motor insurance. These discussions will take into account the existing work of the Motor Insurers' Bureau and the position of passengers and dependants.
