The Coroners and Justice Act 2009 introduced changes to the Coroner Service including the appointment of the Chief Coroner
These changes were implemented in 2013. The Ministry of Justice reviewed the Act’s effectiveness in 2015, but it has not published the result.
The Committee’s inquiry will examine the effectiveness and capacity of the Coroner Service and whether enough progress has been made since the 2009 changes in improving bereaved people’s experience of the Coroner Service.
The deadline for written evidence is 2 September 2020
