ABI Comments on the General Election Result

Huw Evans, Director General, Association of British Insurers, said:

"We congratulate the Prime Minister and Conservative party on winning the 2019 General Election. We are committed to working with it on behalf of our world-leading insurance & long-term savings market and its customers. There are urgent challenges facing the newly elected government where we can help deliver much-needed reform, whether it is ensuring we have a retirement market that serves for our ageing population, much-needed reforms to fire safety to protect vulnerable people or investing in the changes necessary to tackle climate change. I hope new ministers face into these issues with a sense of urgency.

“Having been given a renewed mandate to leave the European Union, the Government now needs to focus on how it ensures an orderly withdrawal and a sustainable future relationship with our European neighbours. Such a relationship should not involve becoming a long-term rule-taker of the Single Market we will be leaving in six weeks’ time.”
