LV= response to Ministry of Justice’s publication of its consultation on reforming the discount rate

Steve Treloar, Managing Director of General Insurance at LV=, said: “The current discount rate mechanism is flawed so it’s absolutely right Government is looking to reform this. Urgent change needs to be delivered so that a new discount rate can be implemented, saving money for millions of drivers and businesses and helping younger and older drivers stay on the roads. We look forward to working closely with the Government on the consultation.”
