In­sur­ance stays pricey

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

I RE­FER to the page 3 ar­ti­cle ( TB, 24/ 07/ 15) and the com­ments made re­gard­ing the cost of premi­ums and I quote par­tially from the state­ment made by Dr Hen­der­son where he sug­gests by adopt­ing the hous­ing up­grade it would have a pos­i­tive ef­fect on pre­mium prices in North Queens­land.

It may not and I base that state­ment on my deal­ings with a large in­sti­tu­tion whereby I ad­vised them that I had just had a new roof put on my house with the up­grades to the sup­port­ing struc­ture bring­ing it into line with mod­ern build­ing re­quire­ments.

When I re­quested a re­duc­tion in pre­mium cost be­cause I had re­duced some of their ex­po­sure to risk, I was ad­vised that they would not give a re­duc­tion.

DAVID THOUMINE,
