The Irish government is drafting emergency legislation to protect insurance policy-holders from the effects of a “hard Brexit”, one of the Central Bank of Ireland’s deputy governors has said.

The central bank has worked to ensure UK-based insurance firms can continue to serve Irish customers in the event of a “hard Brexit”, Ed Sibley said in Dublin today (January 17).

A large number of Irish consumers have insurance policies with UK firms, including some in the British territory of Gibraltar.
