HC Deb 09 February 2004 vol 417 c1251W
Mr. Oaten

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he plans to regulate the basis on which coroners decide on the re-opening of a case. [151716]

Paul Goggins

[holding answer 29 January 2004]We do not intend to regulate this, as it is primarily a judicial matter which should therefore be left to the discretion of the coroner.
