This is likely to be our position also. /Pace/ Ben, but we maintain
based on legal advice that this particular insurance requirement (not
the concept of insurance in general!) is extremely unlikely to lead to
practical benefit for anyone. Its presence either has no effect (if CAs
are required to have the insurances already by other bodies) or leads to
increased and unnecessary costs for CAs (if they are not).
