Labour: Whiplash claims should be limited

Shadow transport minister John Woodcock comments on the transport committee's report on the cost of motor insurance:

"This important report rightly exposes the scandal of dodgy whiplash claims hiking up insurance costs for honest motorists.

"This out-of-touch government has so far rejected Labour proposals to limit whiplash claims – they should now swallow their pride and act to ease eye-watering insurance costs for hard-pressed motorists."
