Lobby group Access to Justice (A2J) has responded to the Government's planned whiplash reforms, claiming that the insurance industry misled it over the need for reforms.

If they're right it's a sad indictment of the insurance industry which the campaign group claims was more concerned to protect falling investment income than protect the rights of its customers.

What's more, it would seem that this whole exercise of consultation and drafting reforms would be unnecessary, should the industry pull together and share data efficiently, especially when it comes to fraud!
