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

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.
Select Committees are a formally established cross-party group of backbench MPs tasked with holding a Government department to account.
At any time there will be number of ongoing investigations into the work of the Department, or issues which fall within the oversight of the Department. Witnesses can be summoned from within the Government and outside to assist in these inquiries, and the Select Committee will occasionally publish formal reports of their findings.

|8 Oct 2019, 11:34 a.m.||Egypt: Aviation||Mr Jonathan Lord|
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will make an assessment of the level of risk of lifting the UK flight ban to Sharm el Sheikh.
Answer (Paul Maynard)
The Department for Transport undertakes aviation security assessments at overseas airports. UK aviation security experts are working closely with their Egyptian counterparts on the ground. It is long standing government policy not to comment on security matters, however I can confirm that we continue to work in partnership with the Egyptian authorities, sharing aviation security expertise, and are grateful for their close engagement and support.
We look forward to achieving the return of flights to Sharm el-Sheikh when the situation allows.
