Courts Minister, Chester Burrows, has announced that a Bill will be introduced in Parliament next year proposing a number of amendments to the Coroners Act 2006. Mr Burrows advises that the proposed amendments will make it easier for the public to find out how coroners are appointed and how possible conflicts of interest are managed, and will improve the way families are consulted if tissue samples need to be retained following a post-mortem examination.  Once introduced, the Bill will go through a select committee process, including public submissions.
