HC Deb 11 June 2002 vol 386 c1243W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on progress of the review of the coroners' system. [57698]

Hilary Benn

The review has so far involved a number of regional visits to coroners and meetings with the public, as well as with the Department for Health, the Retained Organs Commission, the Lord Chancellor's Department, the Judicial Studies Board and other relevant organisations. Time has also been spent in Northern Ireland, and review team members have attended Home Office-run coroner training events. The review team hope to issue a consultation on document shortly.
