I understand (thank you, Headlineauto) that the Transport Committee has agreed to hold a short inquiry into the cost of motor insurance.

It will focus on: the reasons and consequences of recent increases in the cost of motor insurance; the impact on young people of the high costs of motor insurance; the extent to which the cost of motor insurance is influenced by the prevalence of road accidents, insurance fraud, legal costs and the number of uninsured drivers; whether there are public policy implications of the rise in the cost of motor insurance; and, if so, what steps the Government might take in response to them.

By far the hugest number of questions I get are from youngsters and parents of youngsters who want to know what is the cheapest car to insure and just what they should be buying. At any one time I also have up to four cars to insure, so insurance is a constantly occurring issue.
