Competition Authority report confirms people being ripped off left, right and centre

20 February, 2004


Sinn Féin leader in the Dáil, Caoimhghin Ó Caoláin TD today criticised the Government for failing to protect the consumer in relation insurance charges. Speaking during Order of Business he said the latest report from the Competition Authority made it clear that people were being ripped off "left, right and centre".

Deputy Ó Caoláin said: "The latest report of the Competition Authority has highlighted once more how people are being ripped off left right and centre with insurance charges. We urgently need legislation on foot of this Report and we need the government to agree to an early debate here in the House so that we can identify exactly what needs to be done now to protect the consumer. Unfortunately that is something this Government and Tanaiste has signally failed to do so far?" ENDS
