HC Deb 04 August 1926 vol 198 c3016W
Colonel DAY

asked the Attorney-General if his attention has been drawn to the failure of Mr. D. N. Haslewood, a Lancashire coroner, to view the body of George Frederick Margerison, upon whom an inquest was held in accordance with Section 4, Sub-section (1), of the Coroners Act, 1887; and whether the Lord Chancellor has taken any action in the matter?


The Lord Chancellor's attention has been drawn to the case alluded to by the hon. Member. It appears that by an error the Coroner omitted to view the body. Proceedings have been taken in the King's Bench Division, and a proper inquest has been directed to be held. The Lord Chancellor does not propose to take any action in the matter.
