It has been really encouraging to receive so many messages of endorsement about the three simple principles that underscore our campaign for reform:

  • That Part IV of the Road Traffic Act 1988 should be revised so as to restore the original 1930 concept: that a compulsory third party motor insurance policy should be good for any use and untainted by breaches of policy term or any contractual restrictions or exclusions - in so far as a motor insurer's statutory indemnity affects a third party victim's claim;
  • That our statutory and extra statutory provision for guaranteeing that victims of motor vehicle incidents recover compensatory entitlement should conform at least to the minimum standards required under Community law;
  • That the extra statutory provision for victims of motor vehicle use should be codified in simple clear and just terms.
I am grateful to all the law firms that have voiced their support as well as to Road Peace and the Motor Accident Solicitors Society.  Most recently, the Edwina Hart MBE, Welsh Minister for Economy Science and Transport has rallied to the cause. 

Onwards and upwards!
