Report published, awaiting Government response.
When the Government published Command Paper 9500, The Personal Injury Discount Rate: How it should be set in future: Draft Legislation, on 7 September 2017, the Secretary of State asked us to undertake pre-legislative scrutiny of the draft clause contained in the paper. We agreed to do so, taking written and oral evidence, and this Report contains our views on the merits of the draft legislation and the evidence and policy objectives underlying it.
Evidence given by Jason Tripp, Operations Director, Coplus, Steve MItchell, Deputy Head of Legal Services, Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers (Usdaw), Nigel Teasdale, former President, and Shirley Denyer, Technical Director, Forum of Insurance Lawyers; Mrs Justice Simler, and His Honour Judge Nigel Bird (at 10.30am); Lord Keen of Elie, Ministry of Justice Spokesperson in the House of Lords, Ministry of Justice (at 11.00am).
