Justice Minister Jonathan Djanogly has issued a letter to stakeholders inviting views on the extension of the current RTA portal process and protocol to cover claims up to £25,000 and to include employers’ and public liability accident claims. He is also seeking feedback on the fixed recoverable costs in the RTA scheme.
Because Government has recently conducted a full consultation on some of these issues, this will not be a full public consultation but views are requested "from as broad a spectrum of stakeholders with an interest in these proposals as possible".
Mr Djanogly's letter poses five questions to which responses are sought by 25th May 2012.
Keoghs welcomes the consultation letter - we see it as another step forwards in driving reform and reducing the transactional cost of delivering compensation.
We are concerned however, that the letter appears to focus exclusively on portal cases. This would be insufficient as a solution and as an unintended consequence could drive the wrong behaviours.
