Government’s response to Coroner Service published

10 September 2021

The Justice Committee publishes the Government’s response to it’s report into the Coroner Service.

The Committee’s report, published in May, called for more to be done to ensure that bereaved families are at the heart of the coroner service. It found that the service people received varied greatly across the country and called for the creation of a National Coroner Service to ensure better standards nationwide.

It further called for better funding to support families in complex cases to prevent an imbalance in access to high quality legal support and ensure they could fully take part in proceedings.

The Government has now responded to the report’s conclusions and recommendations.
