ABI comments on Prime Ministers interview on Andrew Marr show

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s interview on the Andrew Marr show today, Huw Evans, Director General of the Association of British Insurers (ABI), said:

Huw Evans, ABI Director General"The Prime Minister is right to note the strong support from the insurance and long-term savings industry for remaining in the EU. We sell more in insurance and savings products to the rest of Europe than they buy from us which helps create jobs and prosperity here in the UK.

"Supporters of a Norwegian-style option should heed the warnings coming from Norway itself. Norway's insurance leaders say the UK has a better deal at the heart of the EU than Norway does – since Norway is always outside the room where the big decisions are taken."
