(a) any premiums paid by the consumer to the insurer in the preceding five years on foot of the contract, and

(b) a list of any claims, including if such have been made, third party claims, that have been paid, on foot of the contract, by the insurer to the consumer (or, as the case may be, to the third party or parties concerned) in the preceding 5 years, except, where the contract concerned is a health insurance contract in within the meaning of section 2(1) of the Health Insurance Act 1994.

(2) Where there has been any mid-term adjustment made to the contract in any of the previous five years, the information to be provided for the purposes of subsection (1)(a) shall be met by:

(a) the provision of an annualised premium figure for the relevant year or years excluding fees or charges applied as a result of that adjustment, and

(3) In subsection (2) the reference to any mid-term adjustment made to the contract is a reference to any alteration lawfully made to the provisions of the contract, at any time during its currency, that results in a change in the amount of the premium charged or in the application of any fee or other charge.
