To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he plans to bring forward proposals to help the insurance industry to reduce the cost of car insurance for newly qualified drivers.
The Government is committed to seeking ways to bring down the costs of car insurance for young drivers. Ministers recently held a roundtable for the insurance industry, at which it was agreed that the Government would commission new research into how telematics can change the behaviour and attitudes of learner drivers.
The Government is also in the process of undertaking some focus groups with parents, young people and employers to get a better understanding of the issues from their perspective. We will publish the findings of the research and focus groups in due course.
