After the meeting the three organisations released the following statement:

“The three organisations are pleased at today’s government statement that a partial payment system, which they understand will be at a level of 80% of a total claim, will be launched “as soon as operationally possible”.

“The organisations are encouraged that the government has listened to the industry’s concerns and has responded positively to their requests.

“The organisations stressed that the key issue will now be how quickly money reaches claimants.

“While this is good news, the organisations strongly expressed their anxieties about the problems of 2006 applications and again urged that every opportunity is taken to introduce greater flexibility into the system.”
