Pending the delivery of the Supreme Court judgment, the FCA published a Consultation Paper on 11 December 2020 (with the consultation period closing on 18 January 2021).
The Consultation Paper took the form of draft guidance upon how the presence of coronavirus (Covid-19) may be proved, based on the High Court’s judgement and declarations, designed to help enable policyholders to receive claim payments as early as possible should the Supreme Court uphold the High Court’s decision that relevant policies potentially provide cover in response to the pandemic.
