BIBA response to Home Office Consultation Paper – Statutory Charges for the Removal, Storage and Disposal of Vehicles

15th October 2007

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) is the UK’s leading general insurance intermediary organisation. We represent the interests of insurance brokers, intermediaries and their customers.

BIBA represents 2,300 insurance intermediaries including 98 of the UK’s top 100 insurance intermediaries. Our members handle about half the value of all UK home, contents, motor, travel, commercial and industrial insurance policies. Independent insurance intermediaries distribute nearly two-thirds of all UK non-marine general insurance, of which BIBA members account for over 80%. They also introduce £20 billion of premium income into London’s insurance market each year.

BIBA is pleased to have the opportunity to respond to the Home Office consultation, into Statutory Charges for the Removal, Storage and Disposal of Vehicles, on behalf of its’ collective membership.

BIBA has discussed the contents of the Consultation Paper with various stakeholders from the insurance industry, and primarily with the Association of British Insurers (ABI).

BIBA would like to formally and fully endorse the ABI’s response to this consultation. We hope the ABI suggestions can be implemented.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our response and the ABI’s submission. If you have any further queries please contact BIBA’s Technical Services Manager Graeme Trudgill for further information on 02073970218 or [email protected].

Yours sincerely

Eric Galbraith
