Law Society Welcomes Consumer Council Campaign
The Law Society of Northern Ireland has said it welcomes the launch by the Consumer Council of a campaign to examine the cost of car insurance in Northern Ireland.
In a statement the Society said that the Consumer Council’s campaign was both ‘necessary and timely’.
The Society which represents solicitors throughout Northern Ireland has been calling for some years for an informed debate on the issues surrounding the high cost of car insurance for motorists.
A spokesperson for the Law Society said:
“The Law Society welcomes the launch of the Consumer Council campaign. We hope that it will provide the impetus for a full examination of the cost of car insurance in Northern Ireland.
The Society has already provided the Consumer Council with our data on this important issue and we look forward to contributing to any inquiry which takes place”.
