HC Deb 06 April 1925 vol 182 c1862W

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the consistent refusal of certain coroners to empanel a jury at inquests even in serious cases; and whether he will take steps to ensure that, where bereaved relatives or representatives acting on their behalf express the desire for the coroner's inquest to be conducted with the aid of a jury, this shall be done?


The answer to the first question is in the negative. With regard to the second, I hope shortly to introduce a Bill which will deal with this and other parts of the law relating to coroners' inquests.

Forward to
