HC Deb 14 December 1983 vol 50 c500W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the charge made to relatives of bereaved persons for the signing of cremation documents, details of which has been sent to him by the hon. Member for Liverpool, Riverside.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I refer the hon. Member to my reply to him on 8 December.—[Vol. 50, c.234.] The charges for the additional certification required under the Cremation Regulations 1930, as amended, are a private matter between the doctors concerned and the deceased's representative.
