HC Deb 19 December 2000 vol 360 c141W
Mrs. Brinton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidelines he issues on the timescale of completion of expert medical reports in relation to deaths being investigated by the police and for coroner's inquests. [142496]

Mr. Hutton

The Department does not issue guidelines on these questions; they are matters for the police and coroners courts.
