“We have potential liability for policies under which UK commercial lines employers’ liability cover has been provided to employers and which commenced or were renewed before 1 April 2011 and in respect of which no claims were made on or after 1 April 2011. However, we are not required to make details of those policies available in this register under FSA rules.

If it does, the statement in 2.1R may be amended as necessary to refer to the policies that are not included.
