Car insurance costs

I would like to present to the House a petition signed by a large number of Pendle residents about the high cost of car insurance.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Brierfield and Nelson,

Declares that the Petitioners believe that the price of car insurance has risen rapidly within the BB9 post code area making it unaffordable for many, as a result of a minority of drivers making fraudulent insurance claims.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government and the insurance industry to work together to reduce insurance costs for car drivers living in the BB9 post code area so that owning a car can be made more affordable.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
