Letter: Make MPs insure to protect public

Sir: As a chartered surveyor, I, like many other professionals, am required by law to carry professional indemnity insurance. My clients are therefore protected in the event that I make an error in my advice of action.

Given the track record of this government, particularly in relation to the BSE crisis, I am wondering if it is now essential, for the public's protection, that each Member of Parliament be covered by similar insurance.

My only concern is that they may need to award themselves another enormous pay rise to pay the premiums.
