Coroners Act to be reviewed
Tue, 31 Jul 2012 4:18p.m.
The Coroners Act will be reviewed.
Courts Minister Chester Borrows says the coronial system is working well but he's concerned about the impact it has on grieving families.
"I'm keen to look at how we can improve the timeliness and efficiency of the coronial process to reduce the impact on those families," he said today.
Mr Borrows also wants to consider whether agencies should have to make formal responses when coroners make recommendations on ways to prevent future deaths.
The Ministry of Justice will lead the review and Mr Borrows wants public input as well.
