While every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, and it is believed that the only errors in the legislation are those contained in the statutes themselves (which errors have been faithfully reproduced), no responsibility is assumed for the content, and reference is made to the originals for an authoritative statement of the Insurance Act 1978 and related Rules, Regulations, and Orders.
