HC Deb 05 February 1987 vol 109 cc779-80W
35. Mr. John Hunt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek to amend the Coroners (Amendment) Act 1926 to extend the jurisdiction of a coroner beyond low water mark in those cases where a drowning takes place several miles out to sea or where the body is not recovered.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

We have no immediate plans to do so.
