Covid-19: MP calls for insurers to make full pay outs due to pandemic


An MP has tabled an early day motion (EDM) calling on the government to press insurers to use cancelled dividend payments to shareholders to pay all Covid-19 related claims.

In the EDM he also expressed concern that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has advised insurers it sees no reason to intervene in cases where business interruption claims resulting from the coronavirus are not covered.

Edwards is the Plaid Cymru MP for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr.
