Equity Life pay out is not enough

I AM writing to clarify a part of the Equitable Life story in last week’s Herald.

The report accidentally misrepresented my position and I would like to put the record straight on this important issue.

It said, “Mr Lloyd is confident everyone will get the settlement they deserve.”

I would just like to make clear that while I applaud the Coalition Government for taking the responsibility over the Equitable Life debauch, after the shameful failure of the previous government to do so; I am still not satisfied that the right level of compensation payments have been made and I continue to press the Government accordingly.

STEPHEN LLOYD,

MP for Eastbourne and Willingdon.
