The Government has published a written response to the recommendations of the Insurance Fraud Taskforce.
Lord Faulks (The Minister of State for Civil Justice) confirmed that the government accepts all of the 26 recommendations to tackle fraudulent activity put forward by the Insurance Fraud Taskforce and confirmed that they will set out in due course how the government proposes to implement them.
Ben Fletcher, Director of the IFB who was the guest speaker at the Forbes annual insurance seminar last year, said: "We are glad to see that the statement clearly recognises that insurance fraud has a real impact on honest members of the public and that it is not a victimless crime. Tackling this problem requires a collaborative approach and we are fully supportive of this. The IFB have welcomed all of the recommendations made by the Taskforce and we are committed to working with Government and industry organisations to ensure we are tackling this serious problem of insurance fraud."
