Insurers could face fines for £4bn dual pricing "rip off"

Fine warning

The government is consulting on measures to tackle the loyalty penalty and combat dual pricing which could see companies fined by the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) if they are found to be breaking the rules.

The proposals would enable the CMA to issue fines without going through the courts – something it is currently required to do.

In a letter to the CMA, Business Secretary Greg Clark reiterated that the loyalty penalty amounted to £4bn across five sectors each year.
