Please see a statement from Maurice Tulloch, CEO of Aviva's UK and Ireland General Insurance business, in reaction to today's report from the Competition Commission.
"Aviva is supportive of the Competition Commission report. It is good news for our customers as it spells out ways in which the car insurance market can be made to operate more efficiently and effectively. Recent reforms introduced by the government have had a favourable impact on car insurance prices for customers, and we see the provisional remedies outlined by the Competition Commission as the next step in the journey to transform the way the car insurance market operates.
"We are delighted that Aviva's proposal for letting the at-fault insurer take greater control of the claim is being considered: we have campaigned on this point for many years. We are also happy to see that the Competition Commission wants to ensure any remedies result in a level playing field for all parties involved in a motor claim. We will respond in detail to the provisional remedies."
