§ Mr. Patchett
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will hold an inquiry into the cost of car insurance charged to disabled people; and if he will take steps to ensure that disabled drivers are not prevented from driving their cars by high insurance.
§ Mr. Atkins
No. It is for insurance companies to set premiums in the light of their own underwriting experience. I welcome the initiative the Association of British Insurers have taken to make available a dossier of insurance advice for disabled drivers and their offer to look into any individual difficulties.
