Written answers (Question to Housing)

As the Deputy will be aware, the purpose of public liability insurance is to ensure that the potential costs of any awards against the policyholder and any legal costs associated with such a claim are met. I am satisfied therefore that the requirements presently set for commercial operators on State lands is appropriate and proportionate.
