And there has been no proper risk assessment…if there had been ministers would have seen that their ‘reforms’ are not only unjust, they are likely to cost the taxpayer more in the long run than they save in ths short term. Interesting news yesterday that there are warnings from inside government about the impact of housing benefit cuts. If we can’t win this debate on moral grounds then we’ll have to talk the government’s language and focus on the money.

Will prices and excesses increase and will they recoverable from the other party in litigation?

Will prices and excesses increase and will this be recoverable from the other party in litigation? Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
