The rumour in the legal provision is that the long awaited reform re so called whiplash claims are due to be released imminently with the introduction in April 2019. Whether a change to the discount rate is likely to happen at the same time is unknown

The Board will consider any return of capital and will announce this with the Group's preliminary results on 27 February 2018." The group expects SCR to be 185% to 190% for end year, before dividends.

See below - released today - Easter recess is 29.3.18 - the bill may include discount rate change Dear supporter, The fight to preserve the legal rights of injured people is about to enter a new phase. There are rumours that the Ministry of Justice is preparing to publish the Civil Liability Bill, possibly before the Easter parliamentary recess. Although a date is speculative, what is beyond doubt is that, if the government does publish the Bill, personal injury will move rapidly up the parliamentary agenda, and the issues at stake will come to the attention of MPs on all sides of the House. The fact that it is a standalone Bill (covering personal injury only) is a good thing, as it means MPs will have more time to debate the specific issues at stake. And, since our last letter to you, before Christmas, it is clearer than ever before that any rationale for the Bill has fallen away. The government’s arguments in support of these measures, flimsy at best, are now untenable. Thanks to good work from Paul Drabble at True Solicitors, we have discovered that, according to the government’s own figures, the savings accruing from the reforms – if passed on by insurers- are between £16-18, a far cry from the original £50 when the reforms were first announced in November 2015. That is equivalent to just 35p a week on the cost of a motor policy. Furthermore, the incidence of RTA claims continues to fall. The government portal notes a year-on-year reduction of 12%, while Medco instructions are down 16%. The Institute of Actuaries confirms a fall in claims incidence, and Allianz announced 80 redundancies in its claims department. In his response to this news, A2J spokesperson Andrew Twambley said: “Why is the government still trying to fix a problem that is already being fixed.” The government has also cited fraud, and the need for the state to clamp down on the so-called compensation culture, to justify its proposals. A2J has long challenged the government’s reliance on ABI fraud data, pointing out that actual fraud adds little more than £4 to the cost of an average motor policy. So we are looking forward to the publication of the Justice Select Committee report into whiplash. MPs on the committee recently challenged Justice Minister Lord Keen to provide impartial evidence on the extent of fraud. The minister was unable to. We are thus hopeful that the Committee will call out the government on this important matter in its report, which may be published in the next few weeks. If all three planks of the government’s arguments for reform are debunked, and the measures fail the ‘public interest’ test, ministers will come under increasing pressure to think again. In summary, there is still everything to play for. Elsewhere, A2J has been working hard with representatives of vulnerable road users (VRUs), such as cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists, to urge ministers to remove them from the scope of the reforms. Cyclists or pedestrians almost never get whiplash injuries if they are involved in an accident on the roads, yet the government seems determined to make sure their civil justice rights are curtailed too. A2J is part of a coalition of VRU representative bodies, and we held a useful meeting last month, where Ruth Cadbury MP, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Cycling, was a special guest. Ruth has promised to assist the group in our campaign to support VRUs. A2J continues to appear regularly in the press. We urge all supporters to read Andrew Twambley’s feature in the latest edition of CILEx, which can be accessed here: hxxp://www.cilexjournal.org.uk/webviewer/#cilexjournalwinter201718/the_civil_liability_bill_and_personal_injury_reform_a_road_to_nowhere Andrew goes behind the specifics of these reforms to investigate why lower investment returns for the insurers following the global financial crisis have driven a concerted effort by the ABI to put insurers’ profits before access to justice for the general public. I look forward to updating you further once the Justice Committee report is published, when A2J will once again be actively campaigning on your behalf, and on behalf of your clients, to make sure our justice system remain open to all, as opposed to being a tool only for the rich and the powerful.

The Final should be 13.6p,already stated by the BOD,s on the DLG website, so with the Interim of 6.8p, being a third of the annual Dividend of 20.4p.So that gives around a 5.5% yield.Hopefully a Special but that will be decided,and declared on the 27/02/2018.

in light of the dividend upgrade I expect a final dividend of 13.2p and a special dividend of 10p 23.2 in total expect a further special dividend if and when the discount rate is raised
