HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c590
23. Major Milner

asked the Home Secretary whether any powers of delegation, or otherwise, have been given to coroners to enable them to continue to certify the cause of death, in view of the possible large increase in deaths in the immediate future due to enemy action?

Sir J. Anderson

I would refer my hon. Friend to the provisions of Regulation 30 of the Defence Regulations, which has been in force since the outbreak of war.

Major Milner

Will the right hon. Gentleman send me a copy?

Sir J. Anderson
