Further to J Portwoods letter (3 April, Insurance Times) I have to say I am surprised at his views regarding the need for PI insurance.
One of his opening comments was: "Can you immagine the [PI insurance] cost for, say, a post office selling policies, by people with little or no knowledge of the product, or for a vet selling policies."
Shouldn't the post office be concentrating on delivering mail? Shouldn't a vet be diagnosing ailments in animals instead of selling policies? Should either of them be selling insurance and/or providing advise to private customers on something they know nothing about? Isn't it about time they left it to the professionals?
