Vnuk: Theresa Villiers MP has secured a debate on the topic this afternoon

Parliament is set to debate the impact of the Vnuk decision at 4:30pm today – more than seven years after the decision of the European Court…

The Commons Library has prepared a useful research paper on how that case, and other subsequent rulings such as Lewis v Tindale & MIB, have affected the motor insurance market. The government response at the conclusion of what will be a short debate could / should offer the relevant DfT minister a great opportunity finally to put some flesh on the bones of very broad and entirely non-specific statements made by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps MP earlier this year and reported here on this blog.

We’ll watch the proceedings later on and report back before the end of the week.

Alistair Kinley – Director of Policy & Government Affairs
