Improved legal cover for CPT members

Improved legal cover for CPT members Improved legal cover for CPT members
CPT has launched an improved service for members to support legal compliance and provide emergency 24-hour cover. CPT chief executive Simon Posner says: “Following a review of CPT’s previous legal helpline and taking into account member feedback, we are delighted to announce this new service which we designed with specialist solicitors and CPT commercial partners, Backhouse Jones.”

Benefits of the improved service include 30 minutes of free legal advice on each individual case, increased from 15 minutes under the previous scheme, and 24-hour cover where before the members’ helpline was active only during office hours.

In addition CPT members now have access to legal protection from 0.26p per vehicle per day through Backhouse Jones’ Backup scheme. Backup offers advice and representation in courts, tribunals and public inquiries, and is available for a fixed annual fee with CPT members benefiting from a 20 per cent discount.
