 Subject: Nationality risk charge in Italy
 Answer in writing 

According to the 31 May 2010 edition of the newspaper La Repubblica, some insurance companies in Italy are making a nationality risk charge. The upshot of this is that people from countries with large migration flows, such as Romania, are compelled to pay higher charges when taking out car insurance.

According to Italian lawyers, national legislation on immigration requires that access to services be non‑discriminatory and not dependent on the nationality of the applicant.

Can the Commission therefore state whether the practice described above complies with European legislation on non‑discrimination?
