Bob has been active in Parliament standing up for his constituents affected by Equitable Life. On 20th July, Bob stated that “one of the concerns is that, sadly, many policyholders have died or are dying.”
And asked if the Minister could “give some comfort on the issue of giving interim payments once the decision has been taken, so that people can receive payments before the commission has completed its work?” The Coalition Government has set up arrangements for compensation payments to be made to policyholders who have lost out as a result of the labour Government’s regulatory failures. Bob has been actively supporting the campaign by Equitable Life policyholders for a fair settlement.
