“Given this unprecedented situation, we understand that a delay to implementing these much-needed reforms is necessary.

However, any delay beyond what is absolutely needed will impact on the benefits to claimants and consumers.

As an industry we remain committed to continuing to support the Ministry of Justice so that the reforms can be introduced as soon as it is practical to do so.”
