The Government will introduce the Apology Bill to state the legal consequences of making an apology in certain proceedings and legal matters. The main objective of the Bill is to promote and encourage the making of timely apologies in order to facilitate the amicable resolution of disputes.
Under the Bill, an apology does not constitute an admission of fault or liability, neither could it be taken into account nor is it admissible as evidence for determining fault or liability to the detriment of the apology maker. The Bill also provides that an apology does not void or otherwise affect any insurance cover under a contract of insurance or indemnity.
