HC Deb 01 July 1954 vol 529 c110W
27. Mr. McLeavy

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to ensure a more suitable arrangement in the future for the regulation of payments made by coroners' officers to jurymen.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

This is not a subject appropriate for legislation, but, in my view, is best dealt with by arrangement between the coroner and the local authority concerned. I am consulting the local authority associations and the Coroners' Society on the question whether it is necessary or desirable to take steps with a view to instituting a standard practice in this matter.
