Read the report

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.
