Insurance should be on the car itself instead of the individuals who drive itGov Responded - 9 Jan 2018 Debated on - 5 Mar 2018

closed 1 year, 7 months ago
In some countries, such as America and Portugal, insurance is based on vehicle itself instead of being based on the individual who drives it. This is an effective method for families and friends as they are able to share a car without paying for multiple insurances.

To ask Her Majesty's Government when they intend to publish the report produced by Steer on the proposed freight line from Liverpool to Yorkshire, via the reinstated Colne–Skipton line.
Answer (Baroness Vere of Norbiton)
We will publish the reports on the feasibility work into the reinstatement of the Colne-Skipton line, including the initial Strategic Outline Business Case prepared by Steer in 2018, once the work is complete and we understand the full picture.
My officials continue to engage with key stakeholders, including the local SELRAP campaign group, on this feasibility work and the findings of the Steer report, which has been shared with the group.
