HC Deb 11 April 1918 vol 104 c1658W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food if he is aware that, on the death of an individual, his sugar card must be returned to the registrar of deaths before registration can take place; is he aware of the dissatisfaction which exists regarding this Regulation; and will he take steps to-alter this Regulation?


I have been asked to answer this question. I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for the Attercliffe Division on the 13th. March, in which I explained that new instructions had been issued to all registrars drawing special attention to the fact that they are under no circumstances to refuse to issue a death certificate owing to failure to produce the deceased's sugar card.
