§ Mr. Marlow
asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether, arising out of the case between Mrs. Valerie Turner and the Prudential Assurance Company, he will seek to amend the law to reinstate the ability of insurance companies to arrange premiums and benefits according to the actuarial probabilities of different groupings of people, including classification by sex.
§ Mr. Eyre
[pursuant to the reply, 22 January 1982, c. 196.]: The position remains that under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 insurance companies may base premiums and benefits of insurance policies on relevant actuarial data. This would include classification by sex.
