The below Parliamentary question was asked by Karl McCartney on 2016-04-27.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what discussions he has had with motor vehicle insurance companies on reducing the number of uninsured drivers.

Andrew Jones

Officials in my Department have regular contact with the insurance industry to discuss measures to reduce uninsured driving.

I last met with representatives from the insurance industry in January to discuss a range of issues related to motor insurance including measures which can reduce the cost of insurance and thereby reduce the incentive to drive without insurance.
