Departmental Claims Policy

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs pursuant to paragraph 7.8 of her Department’s annual report 2006, what measures her Department is taking to discourage and resist bad claims. (115298)

The Department is introducing the regulation of claims management services under the Compensation Act. This will tackle certain practices carried out by some previously unregulated claims farmers, such as encouraging and bringing bad claims. We are also working with stakeholders to encourage organisations to resist bad claims.
