The article analyses the impact of the Equalities Bill concerning age discrimination, which could come into effect by 2010 in Great Britain. Insurance brokers are concerned that the Bill could mean spiraling premiums. The article states that it would also mean that insurance will become more complicated for agents to sell as they would have to conduct full risk assessments of customers for insurance companies. Insurance executive Antony Martin says that it could also raise the cost of insurance.
