Action Group to tackle UK ‘compensation culture’

A advisory group comprising almost 30 government, public and private sector bodies has met for the first time to tackle the UK’s ‘compensation culture’.

Called the Action Group, it will advise an inter-departmental ministerial steering group, to be chaired by constitutional affairs minister David Lammy. This will oversee action to deliver initiatives identified in the government response to the Better Regulation Task Force report, Better Routes to Redress.

The response set out how Government will tackle practices that lead to misperceptions and false expectations about the compensation system and improve the system for those who have a genuine claim to compensation.

Lammy said: “‘The membership of the Action Group represents a real commitment to resolving issues of concern to the public about the so-called compensation culture and to making effective improvements to the system for the genuine claimant.”
