HC Deb 29 July 1983 vol 46 c665W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, in the light of the letter sent to him by Her Majesty's coroner for the Eryri district, Mr. J. Pritchard Jones, if he will take steps to minimise delays in completing inquests, particularly those which involve pneumoconiosis cases.

Mr. Newton

I am at present considering whether there is any further action I can usefully take to expedite the completion of the reports of pneumoconiosis medical panels.
