Have your say in review of riots insurance

Residents and businesses are invited to a public meeting in Tottenham to have their say on insurance laws to protect communities affected by riots.

The government has launched an independent review of the Riots (Damages) Act – written more than a century ago – to make sure it protects the vulnerable, and has appointed expert Neil Kinghan to visit areas affected by the 2011 riots.

The meeting at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London on Thursday, July 11, will be a chance for those who made a claim for insurance using the law, to voice their opinion on the process and how it could be made better.

Haringey Council Leader Claire Kober said: “We know that many people made claims for damage to their homes and businesses during the 2011 riots.

“I urge anyone affected to come along next week and have their say so that this independent review hears how the law can be improved for the future.”

The review will continue visiting affected communities until September and the government will hold a public consultation on any proposals to change the law.

There is no need to register for next Thursday’s public meeting at The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London, Tottenham High Road, N15 4RU.

A session for businesses will run between 3.30pm and 5.00pm, followed by one for residents between 6.00pm and 7.30pm.
