HC Deb 05 November 1979 vol 973 c79W
Mr. Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, whether he proposes to introduce legislation designed to amend the provisions contained in section 5 of the Burial Act 1853; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Fox

Consideration is being given to this and other aspects of burial law which stand in need of revision, but we can hold out no prospect of legislation being introduced by the Government during the current Session.
