HC Deb 25 March 1988 vol 130 c233W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster when he expects the 1975 European 2nd directive on freedom of service in insurance to be implemented.

Mr. Maude

The second directive on freedom of services in non-life insurance must be fully implemented within 24 months of its adoption being notified to member states. We hope that adoption of the directive will take place by the end of the German presidency in June, in which event the directive will come into force in mid-1990.
