HC Deb 23 March 1876 vol 228 c475

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, If it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government during the present Session to move for a Committee to consider the advisability of legislation on the office of coroner in Ireland, or to take any other step on the subject?


, in reply, said, he had last Session, in the debate on the Coroners Bill, expressed an opinion that it was advisable that an inquiry should take place, and he was rather surprised that no steps in reference to the subject had been taken this Session by any of those who had previously brought it before the House. The question was not one of great urgency, and the amount of other business already on his hands precluded him from moving in the matter—at any rate, at present.
