On Friday the 12th of February The ISME Chair wrote to¬† both the Taoiseach and the full cabinet to address our concerns on the cost of insurance. ISME has been lobbying continuously on the cost of insurance for the last six years. Ross McCarthy’s tenure as ISME Chairperson will come to an end in May this year without any material improvement in the cost of insurance. When his predecessor Ciaran Murtagh met with then Enterprise Minister Heather Humphreys in February 2018, she assured him that the Personal Injuries Commission (PIC), under the Chairmanship of Mr Justice Nicholas Kearns, would be the final and definitive piece of work required by Government in order to recalibrate personal injuries awards. She made the same assurances personally to him too.
