HC Deb 12 March 1936 vol 309 cc2337-8W

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the decision of a coroner's jury in Nottingham in bringing a verdict of guilty against Nurse Waddingham; if he is aware that she was afterwards tried before a jury composed of persons from the same area at the recent Nottingham assize; and, in view of these facts, can he state whether the. Government intend to take any action in connection with the recent report of the departmental committee on coroners?


The Committee's report is under consideration and I am not at present in a position to say what action may be taken on its recommendations.
