HL Deb 25 June 1997 vol 580 c166WA
Earl Russell

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will make it a requirement that inquests returning a verdict of suicide should record whether the person was homeless or enjoyed visible means of support.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Home Office (Lord Williams of Mostyn)

No. This would be inconsistent with the limited aims of an inquest verdict.
