Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
Insurance Sector: Discussion
I welcome that, but I wish to get into the issue of fraudulent claims rather than exaggerated ones. Fraudulent claims are a separate issue. It is a nice headline from the industry. Do the representatives believe that the insurance industry only reporting 19 fraudulent claims to the Garda in a period of six months is an accurate reflection of the level of suspected fraudulent claims within the industry? Are such claims not being reported? What is happening in that regard? The representatives are telling us it is about fraud. How many such cases have been reported by Allianz?
