‘Action needed to cut crippling insurance costs’ – Boylan

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has said action is needed to reduce the crippling cost of insurance for families, workers and businesses. 

Speaking after the Assembly today endorsed a Sinn Féin motion calling for an investigation into recent insurance hikes and a reduction in the rate of Insurance Premium Tax, Cathal Boylan said:

“I welcome the Assembly’s endorsement of Sinn Féin’s call for action on soaring insurance costs which are causing huge difficulties for many workers, families and small businesses. 

“Motorists and householders have seen huge hikes in their premiums despite not having made a claim.

“Meanwhile, the insurance industry has generated huge profits prompting many to ask what are the regulating authorities doing to rein this in and give ordinary people a break.

“The Financial Conduct Authority, the Prudential Regulation Authority, and the Competition and Markets Authority all have a duty to monitor and regulate the insurance industry, investigate any allegations of unfair practices, and to ensure consumers receive a fair price.

“We are therefore calling on these bodies to fulfil their statutory duties to hold the insurance industry to account and investigate the recent increases in insurance premiums.

“We are also calling on the British government to reduce the rate of Insurance Premium Tax which puts an additional financial burden on workers, families, and small businesses.”
