Employers' Liability

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will take steps to ensure that the Association of British Insurers maintain records of all companies liable for employers’ liability. (113316)

Since 1 November 1999, the Association of British Insurers and the Lloyd’s Market Association have been operating a code of practice for tracing Employers’ Liability Compulsory Insurance (ELCI) policies that currently exist.

The 2006 pre-Budget report set out a simplification plan outlining the steps that DWP is taking to achieve our target of reducing the administrative burdens we place on business. This will result in an ELCI consultation exercise later this year and the maintenance of ELCI records will form part of this.
