Bradford MP welcomes car insurance probe

Bradford MP David Ward has welcomed a decision by the Office of Fair Trading to refer the car insurance market to the Competition Commission.

Mr Ward carried out his own investigation into the industry last summer in response to high premiums in his Bradford East Constituency. He has since led a campaign to bring premiums down and has lobbied the Government to take action to address what he calls 'bad practice' in the insurance trade.

“This is a real win for motorists and for our campaign for cheaper car insurance. Every aspect of this of this broken system needs to be thoroughly looked at and a competition commission investigation should get to the root of many of the issues we raised in our report."
