Motor Insurance Regulation Bill

A private member's bill introduced by Jack Straw, no less, the aims of which are described officially thus:
A Bill to reform the regulation and operation of the market in motor insurance, and specifically, to ban the payment of referral fees; to establish new standards relating to the evidence required and damages payable for whiplash; to reform the Pre-Action Protocol for Personal Injury Claims in Road Traffic Accidents; to set requirements in respect of risk pricing for personal injury claims; and for connected purposes.
It was due to have its second reading in the Commons on 20 January, but didn't. It is not known when it might (or, indeed, I suppose, whether it will at all). A pity, because it sounds sensible - unless the government is picking up on its aims in its own legislation.
