The CILA President, Benedict Burke, was delighted to represent the Institute at the APPG on Insurance and Finance at the House of Commons on 15th March 2016.
Benedict was specifically invited to attend and represent the important views of our membership to the gathered Members of Parliament, Lords and the public. Benedict was able to highlight that our members had made over 10,000 visits following Storm Desmond between December 2015 and February 2016.
In addition, our President made reference to the 2007 storms and made the point that this current event was not on the scale of the 2007 event, although equally devastating for those affected. The Institute is seen as the voice of authority in the claims arena and with our President being identified as a key person to report to Parliamentary officials is most rewarding.
